Hayter 10/30 won't turn over and start?

I have a 10/30 hayter ride on. Battery is OK. Starter solonoid clicks and it doesn't turn over or start. Engine is free so no problem there.
I even bridged the solonoid and that didn't even turn the engine over.
Do I need a new starter

Are you getting 12V at the starter motor itself when you try to start? Is there a good earth connection between starter and battery -ve?
