Can anyone help?

The battery light came on driving down the M6. I managed to get to Twickenham, stopped the engine, and of course the battery was as flat as a pancake when I tried to restart.

HELP
1. Does anyone recommend a garage or mechanic in the Twickenham area?
2. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

SYMPTOMS
Battery seems low on power but just manages to just start the engine (always first time though). I checked the battery when these symptoms first showed and read 13.80v. Fan belt is there, good condition, bit of play though.

WHAT COULD IT BE?
Alternator, starter, other mystery electrical problem.

Can anyone help?

Green Flag came out. Yes, alternator (giving out only 9.4v to the battery (Ouch!). I could have changed it in a few minutes had I the tools with me, but there we are. They took it away to a garage and I am waiting patiently for delivery.
