Seems that the user on England gets chrooted. Check /etc/ftpaccess.ctl for a puseronly entry for that user on England.

/etc/ftpusers contains users who are forbidden to use ftp at all.
Which FTP server do you use? If it'sa third party product, maybe it has its own config file?
What if you login directly (telnet or ssh or the like)? Do you see the same effect?

What do you see on England when you issue 'ls' or 'dir'? The contents of the real root (/) or the contents of the user's home?
If it's the user's home, there is no other possibility - the user gets chrooted somehow.
If it's indeed '/' - double-check the user's homedir setting!

Is there a dot (.) somewhere in the home directory path specification in /etc/passwd of the affected user?
Again - do you see the contents of the user's home with 'ls', or something else?

Glad you found it!

So I've been on the right track with my comment 24399726 above -
