Carbon Fibre Boards

Anyone know of a UK supplier of carbon fibre and glass fibre boards.
Also does anyone know how much I should expect to pay, especially for the
carbon fibre.
Thanks

Carbon board I have seen from car racing and fiber specialists - expect a shock pricewise. ten dollars might buy you a square inch or so.

I need quite a bit so need to find a good supplier.
Didn't bother with so-called local hobby shop as their price will be expensive.

Adrian: Don't know where you would get it, but then you are "over there" whilst I am "over here". However you can expect to pay more than you are probably hoping for. Quality carbon fiber is in very short supply lately and producers can pretty much get what they wish to ask. Those who are willing to pay the price stand a better chance of getting the stuff that those that don't wish to pay the price.
What's the problem? Lots of answers, but among them: Boeing has decided to built airplanes using large quantities of carbon fiber. One of the very few suppliers is bankrupt and in receivership. not enough production capacity. Etc.
Be careful, carbon fiber is a main ingredient in aircraft brakes. Corners will be cut, and marginal materials will be used. Chose airports with long runways.
