not returning street level information

Hi

Ive just signed up to this API to use for the registration page of my website so that users can enter a house number and postcode (for UK) and it will auto fill the other elements of the address.

I am just playing around with it at the moment with the below link but I cant get it to return line1 details. The house number isnt a problem but I need it to look up the street name at least. It just returns the 1 result as well.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

    PlaceFinder does not currently support this type of query. PlaceFinder requires a street name, along with a postal code or city name, in order to geocode an address.
