Default C30 No power up hills

I've just bought a 2008 C30 1.6D with 90000 miles on the clock. The vehicle starts, ticks over and runs perfectly with good acceleration and no misfire or uneveness. Unfortunately when climbing hills (even gentle motorway inclines) the speed drops off dramatically often requiring 1st gear just to keep moving. Any ideas please - I'm suspecting fuel filter, but the problem only arises up hills.
