I contacted HMPO in order to guage the progress of my application. I was told that they received the passport application on the 30th August. The lady I spoke to says once the Home Office is through with their checks it's then passed to them. (Don't know how accurate this info is)

On the 7th September I received a letter stating that they were unable to process passport fee, so paid over the phone.

Praying that I'll be able to update with some good news soon.
