Wordpress does not load when creating a new site

Hi Guys,

I have downloaded ‘local’ and when creating a new site it progresses through the creation, as expected, but when it loads WordPress it states '‘Adding WordPress’ but continues like this forever!. I have canceled, by exiting. and when rebooting ‘local’ there are two pulsing dots where the WordPress version should show. This is the latest version of ‘local’ which I updated from the ‘local lighting’ version (this had bee running ok prior to the upgrade. I have tried to make a few sites with this version, but each time the Wordpress installation just ‘hangs’. I can down load Worpress from the Wordpress.org website (separately) without any issues. Any help would be appreciated.
