Problem with Lookup with special character (+)

I am trying to do a lookup but my data includes a special character - a plus +

In Excel it is erroring and in Google Sheets, it is causing further issues with wrong values being returned.

I have uploaded a spreadsheet which shows the issue.

Column D is devised by looking for column F in A and returning value in B

Thanks

Aidan
