Thanks for the response, personally I am quite pleased with the content of my Living DNA report which I thought was quite comprehensive, but then have not seen other reports by different providers but I did do quite a lot of research before choosing them and on balance they came out very well, my opinion of course, and it is a disappointment that Ancestry do not accept or cannot use the Living DNA report so perhaps will move tree elsewhere..
Good to hear, they have the most comprehensive coverage of England and Wales currently, their database was built on from the 2015 'People of the British Isles' project at Oxford

I do hope they get it up and going and get more trees and tree match  tools as I'm fond of FindMyPast - I've been with them since they were 1837online - and I find them much better than Ancestry for searching.  They are especially good for my Welsh lines  :)

MyHeritage and Ancestry (despite the obvious matching/hint errors) seem to have better tree tools at the moment.

I uploaded my Ancestry DNA results to the Living Site a while back and have now received message that I have Matches on there. Interesting, because it's for people I don't match to on any of the other Sites. I can only assume that they are people who tested with Living.
