Does anyone know which test is acceptable to fly back home to UK. 

Is it the Full PCR test or is it the Lateral Flow Test which is the correct one  , that is acceptable by Customs and Airline ?

Yes and you need the Booking Reference to enter on the UK Passenger Locator form that you need to complete within 48hrs prior to your flight
