Solved. It seems that the default tzap channels.conf file is not 
recognized by the channel scanner. I am sure it used to be, although 
maybe scan has changed its default output format. Anyway the solution is 
to output in vdr format:

scan -a0 -o zap /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/uk-WinterHill > channels.conf
