    Your toilet should not leak, the bath should not gurgle.

    Try running the bath taps again, what happens?

    I took the toilet out, but blocked the hole, i filled the bath so high it made alike a slurping noise when i let the water out, as it was draining i pulled the blocker out and in it had suction there, the noise did get worse once i pulled out the blocker..

    Is the external soil stack open at the top or is there an AAV fitted?

    If so take it off and try the bath again.

    Hi Andy took it off and when i did water come out the bottom of it, and it quite far up from where the water drops and the suction has completely gone from the blocker on the pan outlet and you can hear the gluging of the water going away and a slerp from the plug hole in that bath when the final bit goes down

    Ok, the soil stack needs to be up and over the guttering with no AAV fitted.

    Yes it could - get rid and run a proper vent up and round the gutter. 900 mm above top of window . Also - your pictures - second row first pic , a stoneware plug with a knob on - that leads down to an interceptor trap - well known for blocking, maybe take a pic. down there.

    what do you mean by the 'back of the toilet'? the back of the cistern or the waste connection at the back of the base of the toilet?

    your waste connection should be so good that the bowl could be brim full and still not leak.

    It Only leaked when i pulled both flushes at the same time, before that is flushed away with no problems, i have removed this Air Vent off the stack and the suction has gone, so would imagine that pulling both flushes now at the same time will be ok.
