A few months ago, the LHS low beam died. No worries, a new bulb from stock and all was well. Now, same problem. No LHS low beam. High beam is fine. RHS is good on high & low beams. Fuses are look good, test OK on the multimeter. Low beam relay is OK. I've tried other H4 bulbs, same result. No low beam.

From searching here I see someone else had similar issues and it was a poor connection at the headlight switch. It sounds unlikely to me though I'd be happy to be wrong if it fixes the problem!
Thanks in advance and cheers, Chris.

If one side is working then that's telling me the wire harness at the light has a issue most probably the earth for low beam as the high feed from your other spot light once activated turns on the H4 high as well.

Replace the globe. You can bet the quality is shite and it’s crapped out again.

Scratch that.

Thank you for all your replies, sorry for the late response, life has been a bit busy this last few days.

Can you get a hold of a cheap headlamp assembly from a wrecker? Use that to test. Maybe there's loose connections in your current headlamp? Even if you have a SS projector headlamp, you can still use a povo exec headlamp to do the job.
