FZ150 lcd problem

I bought an FZ150 about 6 weeks ago and my daughter has taken it on a trip to Ladakh and Nepal. She mentioned today that there is a problem with the lcd:

"it started the first week - a few pixels werent showing and its just been growing like a tree

it's about a cetimeter down from the edge and about half the size of my little fingernail"

So... any ideas? She claims no knocks or moisture. It is still under warranty of course but she won't be back in the UK for at least another month and I'm sure that in any warranty claim Panasonic would find an excuse not to repair.

I replaced LCDs on a TZ3 and an old Canon (they were both genuine idiot user breakages!) so I'm quite happy repairing it myself IF I can find a UK source for the lcd screen. Does anyone know the part numbers or where I can buy the lcd screen?
