Zoom ring problem

Recently the zoom ring on my Panasonic Leica 14-150mm FT lens has been getting noticeably stiffer to operate when I zooom out between approx 70mm FL and 25mm FL. It feels normal through the remainder of the zoom range and also when I turn it the opposite way (i.e. zoom in).

Is there any reliable DIY fix for this problem, or will it need to visit a repair technician? If it needs to visit the doctor, please can anybody recommend a reputable camera/lens repair company (preferably in the Manchester, Sheffield, Preston region)?
