How can I make the LibreOffice spell check work?

After using OpenOffice for some time I've just installed LibreOffice instead. Everything works fine - except the spell checker. I've set UK English on Tools-Options-Language Settings-Languages but any attempt to spell check merely informs me that a check has been carried it - and found nothing. When I click the ABC box to run the spell check the dialogue box has a blank space for 'Text Language' but it's impossible to access this behind the "spell check is complete" box in front of it. Looking on the forums it seems this is a common problem, but advice there is usually to download another dictionary from an 0-0 site which is unavailable. I don't know why this has to be so complicated, I would like to know how to make it work.
