    Default Scanner multipule input [Solved]

    Hello all,

    I'm having a bit of trouble using a Scanner, it'll get the typed information right up until the last two, where it decides to skip "Please enter your town:" and ask for "Please enter your postcode:" instead, though it'll still show "Please enter your town:" in the console (I just can't enter a value into it) every other input seems to go through fine.

    Can anyone be of assistance and inform me as to why this is happening? Logic tells me that it's a problem using multiple inputs, perhaps even a problem when the input is changed from String to integer - But I'm hitting my head off the desk in frustration

    Update: It appears my problem was solved by creating one scanner for strings and the other for integers.

    Code updated:
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class week3b
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    		Scanner integer = new Scanner(System.in);
    		System.out.println("Please enter your title:");
    		String title = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your forename:");
    		String forename = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your surname:");
    		String surname = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your house number:");
    		int housenumber = integer.nextInt();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your street name:");
    		String street = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your town:");
    		String town = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Please enter your post code:");
    		String postcode = input.nextLine();
    		System.out.println("Your postal address is:");
    		System.out.println("\n"+title+" "+forename+", "+surname+" ");
    		System.out.println("\n"+housenumber+" "+street+", ");

    Thank you for your time,
