Non-geographic postcodes added to UK postcode list

I received a complaint that some postcodes were missing from my UK postcode list that were in the original ONS data. I was a little confused by this, since the import is pretty much automated. But looking at my import code I realised I was ignoring postcodes with no location information. I think initially I’d assumed these were postcodes with duff data so ignored them, but for completeness I’ve now added them to the list, adding a few thousand more postcodes. Since they have no associated location data, there isn’t much interesting information available for each of these postcodes but they may be useful for something… An example.
