The BritSet is Back

We have had a revamp and yes the site is a lot smaller than before (at the moment) but we will be looking to bring you much more content in the coming weeks and months. We will be cleaner, easier to navigate, work better on mobile devices and have more information, clips, pics and other content than ever before
