GPX info not displaying in walk report

Just writing a walk report with a GPX attached. When I add the GPX the walk info (time, OS grid ref, hills walked, etc...) appears in edit mode but then disappears when I save the report. Is this a known problem, don't think I've had it happen before?

It's not a known problem. Can you email a copy of your GPX to and we'll investigate? Thanks.

OK, I have fixed your walk report by hand but I'm still trying to work out what happened, especially as your later walk report worked fine.

Thanks Paul! Only thing I can think of was that I didn't upload the GPX as attachment 1? However even when I deleted the whole post and posted again with the GPX as attachment 1 the problem remained, pointing to some sort of problem with the GPX itself maybe? However I use a dodgy Chinese Huawei fitness watch and it's not unheard of for it to experience some GPX weirdness!
