I've lost digital read outs for trip computer,litres per 100 ks, odomter etc. Needle gauges work ok. Anyone familiar with this? Do I need a new instrument cluster?

Have you got a mate that you can borrow one from or maybe try the fuse or a loose connector?

If the ODO is not showing when the car is off the cluster has lost 12 v power via the orange white wire in the 4th plug.

The ODO is on when car switched off but only half of numbers showing. It started on the left of the three displays, then the middle one went now I'm slowly losing ODO, kms left display on the right hand side.

Most probably 2 things - 1. The LCD's are dead now and will need replacing. 2. the white fascia holding the LCD screens in place has failed releasing the pressure needed for the screens to work - it will need glue and some know how to fix.
