Can anybody confirm one or the other for me please or is it something else,

it started on the bottom leaves so i removed them but it gradually worked its way to the top of the plant, the fruits were ok but i have taken the plant out of the greenhouse

Downy Mildew (weather related) I would say, Ann.

Hi Ann

It could be magnesium deficiency
