And you've checked every fuse, in both fuse boxes?

Stupid question, but I assume you're going to the ACC mode before testing a device?

Yes I actually checked all the fuses in all fuse boxes, had nothing else to do that evening :D and they did seem alright.
I have 2 dashcams and I checked both in ACC mode and full operating mode, and I tried each of them in both cig lighters that are present in the car and none of the devices worked from cig. lighter in the armrest.

You're certainly thorough!

Have you got access to a multimeter?

If I were you then, I'd measure the resistance of the outer part of the socket to earth, then the volt drop between the core and earth. At least you'll know which aspect is the problem before potentially pulling the console apart.

I have a slightly odd issue with regard to the 12v and USB plugs. I have a couple of devices which plug in to the 12v in order to charge phones etc (usb outlets). Power is definitely getting to the device, but no power is then coming out of them to the phones. They work fine in other cars. USB under the armrest is also not supplying charge when a lead is plugged in there. Any thoughts?

Could it be the leads themselves? I currently run stuff - SatNav, DVD playes and phone charger- off all three PHEV outlets with no problems but have found that not all USB cables will work in all sockets all of the time - both cars and PCs.

For the USB, I think it's only 500mA so designed for music to go to the stereo, rather than charging devices.

Thanks for the tips: phones have started charging again when plugged in so must have been a loose connection or wiggly amp somewhere.
