Pilot light on boiler

Our boiler is an Ariston combi.
Model DIA 20/24 MFFI CE.
The pilot light wont ignite the gas two times running. There is a button underneath that has to be pressed and held. We have had a corgi plumber look at it, then says its ok now - charges us, then it happens again

The plumbers repair should be guaranteed, give him a call back.
It sounds to me that the pilot flame needs to be adjusted or the thermocouple is not aligned properly or there is a draft that is blowing out the pilot.
Good luck...
