It doesn't look like the classic signs of blight and probably unlikely seeing as you sprayed last week. The photos are a bit small too which doesn't help. My potatoes will give you the definitive answer. There were blight warnings last week as you know but I think the northern half of the country would have been more affected than the south.

If I were you I would change your user name to something different than your e-mail address, there are weirdos on here, myself included!!!

Photos are a bit on the small side so it's very hard to tell. I agree with tagwex, based on what we're seeing it doesn't look like blight.
