My neigbour has a Canon i560 printer and the printhead is not printing yellow correctly - he has two heads which are now blocked.
I have read about cleaning in the USA but I'm based in UK - any ideas on how and with what to clean / soak the heads.

any help please

You can soak the heads in hot water or ammonia. You need only about a half inch of liquid.

But can a whiskey soaked printhead print a straight line without zig-zagging all over the page? :p
