This can be a problem sometimes with a petrol engine but I don't expect it to be a problem with a 1.9TDI engine in a 2006 Seat Altea.

Starts perfectly when cold but really difficult when the engine is up to operating temperature.
Full throttle and several long attempts at starting are necessary to get it going but as soon as it does start it runs fine. Fuel filter blocked?

Going to change it next anyway week as soon as I can get to a car spares shop.

Had the problem for about 3 weeks now but the car is only used 2 or 3 times each week.
