Laser/CNC Mill part cutting services in UK

Hi,

After yet another break from RC I'm entering the fold again.
I am currently designing a small electric high wing trainer in built-up balsa / lite-ply. One of my major problems is the fact that i have no real build space and a girlfriend with little tolerance for my mess.
What i am looking for is for a laser / CNC milling part cutting service for wing ribs / formers. Are there any folk in the UK who can offer a service such as this or reccomend such as service.
I know i could just go out and but a kit but half of my interest in these things is in actually desinging it myself and then learning how well it crashes
I can supply virtually any format DXF, DWG, EPS, TIFF, IGES, CATDrawing etc etc
I would just like to be able to get the more fiddly parts pre-cut to save mess and build time at home. Think of it as a do-it-yourself-ARTF
Any pointers appreciated.
I'll post my plans here when i've got something successful done....

I've heard good reports of both but I haven't used either myself (I'm allowed to make all the mess I like ).

Or use us.

If your CAD is clean we are a lot cheaper than some. By teh sound of it, it would be.
