Check out the MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, etc. sites to check what boards still produced and then find local store to purchase. I see lots of boards available through Amazon and NewEgg here in the U.S.. You can find lots of newer and used boards on ALI and Ebay as well.

I can't even begin to talk about pricing in the UK. I just don't know the market.

I do know that you have Amazon and Newegg presence there, so go online and look at their prices.

I am seeing B75 boards for as low as £53. You aren't going to do any better than this.

Normally, if you need a certain BIOS in order to use a processor, you need a generation older processor in order to install the required BIOS.
Who is board manufacturer?
What is board id?
What is BIOS version information?

"Foxconn h61m-v i cant get download files anywhere cus its been taken down"

You need to go to ASROCK for files for their boards, not Intel.
