My diesel won't start in the morning - what's wrong?

My Peugeot 407 2.0 HDi won't start in the mornings. If I roll it down a hill it will start and it starts any time when warm. Any ideas?

Failed glowplugs. It's a compression ignition engine which is why rolling downhill starts it and it starts when warm. But needs the glowplugs to glow to start on a level surface from cold.
