not fibbing or telling porkies - I have no reason to do so. Will take photos again and compare against previous photos to see if I can spot any differences, will know soon enough if I have been mugged. I didn't see him open the cover that sits on top of the PCB if he did sneakily change the jumper as you suggest. I can confirm that hot water is HOT now. Before replacing the diverter valve the boiler engineer explained that it was the diverter valve by showing me the hot water outlet pipe was very hot to touch yet the water from the tap at the time was luke warm - I must say I believed him but what do I know, I'm just a layman when it comes to boilers !
