Default Help needed with London Metropolitan archives offer

The latest Lost cousins newsletter advertised this:-
Free access to London parish records 18TH-31ST MAY

The London Metropolitan Archives have arranged for their records at Ancestry.co.uk to be free during Family History Fortnight, which runs from Monday 18th May to Sunday 31st May.

However, whenever I try and view any of the records it takes me to the subscription page. I have found a few things that might be interesting, so it is infuriating not to be able to view them.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks

There are only a few London collections listed in Ancestry's blog entry about free collections:

You might be best to contact the LMA on either Facebook or Twitter and ask them about it.

That explains it, as the collections I was looking at from the Lost cousins list, aren't included in this one.
Thanks
