I've found the problem, a simple configuration error...

I had

     SSLProtocol TLSv1 SSLv3

as my config, ssl3 worked fine by tls1 failed.

Changing this to

     SSLProtocol SSLv3 TLSv1

caused tls1 to work, but now ssl3 failed.

Problem was not using '+' infront of the protocols when trying to add 
one in, so it resulted in only the last protocol listed actually working.

Changed the config to

     SSLProtocol TLSv1 +SSLv3

and now both work fine

Thanks for the help - and sorry for wasting time on what turned out to 
be a simple config error!
