Cheap Cordless drill

My old cheap cordless drill has just packed up after 8 years.
Anyone recommend a half decent cordless drill for under £60, preferably with a hammer action.

I know you generally get what you pay for, but this isn't going to be used all the time, plus I can't afford spending a lot on one.

My old one was a 14v cordless hammer drill, which has served well. not sure if 18v would be a better choice.

Any suggestions?

ALDI are doing an 18V drill for £19 this week. 3 year warranty can't be bad.

Thanks for the help guys.
I have heard good things about Ryobi stuff. I was thinking that maybe i am better off spending a bit more and maybe getting one where the batteries are interchangeable in case i get other cordless stuff.

I hyave had Aldi stuff before and seems ok, especially for things that you maybe use once a year or so, but thinking if i'm going to buy something new maybe something a bit better may be best.

I quite like the look of the Ryobi CDI-1441 14.4 Volt in foxhole's post below, but they are out of stock, is this an old model as all the other Ryobi stuff i have seen are a yellow/green colour!
The screwfix kit isn't a hammer drill and only ni-cd batteries but still a very good kit.

99% shure it hammer i have a similar model and the ring behind the chuck is the selector ring if you look at the top you will see oblong with 2 symbols one is a drill spiral the other one is a "t" shaped hammer symbol

besides never seen a driver with a side handle and depth stop ;)
Well technically he's right, it's not a hammer drill. It's a percussion drill.
