Can anyone recommend a free online security vulnerability scanner that can check our public IP address for any potential threats and provides a report of ports open etc?

You can use grc.com to check ports

You can also use www.intodns.com to check domain names.

Thanks I will take a look at these. I have seen some in the past that test things like IIS Vulnerabilities and Exchange/SMTP vulnerabilities in the past.

Does anyone else know of any that can go to that level?
