Salt won't do much for bloat. Over here in the U.S. they sell Metro (by Seachem) and I think in the U.K. they sell Octozin. Pick some up and follow the instructions, don't be shy in overdosing.

Just google Octozin, your search results will be better since it will probably have links to companies in the UK. Or just go to your local fish store and ask for it.
