Cherry tomato plants - white spots on leaves - any advice please?

Hi, I've grown some cherry tomato plants from seed for the first time, but the leaves have developed little white spots/patches on them.

Is there anything I can do to help them recover from this?

    Tesni, those look like sun-scorch, caused by spots of water on the leaves when grown under glass.  The answer is to never water tomatoes from above, apply water directly to the compost only.  The damaged leaf edges could also be caused by too low temperatures - don't put tomatoes outside if it is below 10C.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
