Hello

I'd check that you're getting power to the glow-plugs, they pull a lot of current so take care when checking but see if the relay is clicking when the ignition is turned on first and also check the fuse if this is OK check to see if the engine earth strap is also OK.

If the plugs haven't been changed in the last 20K then they may have to be replaced.

Another possibility is the fuel filter is slightly blocked, so again unless this has been recently changed I'd fit a new item as they're only a few pounds.
