Extension roof

Hi, just finished my extension roof and in the top left corner I can't seem to get the tiles to lock properly around the velux and it's been driving me mad. First attempt at a roof. Can anyone advise if it would be OK as it is or what I need to do in order to get them to sit right. It all started with the tiles that ran behind the velux on the left. Pictures show my roof and a zoomed in pic of the problem tiles. Iv done a 12cm over lap as opposed to the 11cm recommended for my pitch. It's a low pitch , but I have the correct tiles and velux and building control are signing everything off.

Thanks in advance

Slight trim to underside of the top of all tiles will allow then to sit better. You will need to start at the first tile.
Apart from that good effort
