Amazon pending amount disappeared from current account

Bit of a strange one. I've been using Amazon for over a decade. Last week I ordered one of their gadgets for 50 quid. It arrived on Thursday. My bank account showed the payment as pending along with a couple of other items. All quite normal. But having looked over the weekend the pending amount has disappeared, the bank account balance which is in credit hasn't been updated and any mention of the order is nowhere to be seen on my bank account.  My Amazon account is fine as is my bank. 
I've had no emails or texts or calls from either my bank or Amazon to suggest anything is wrong. 
Any ideas? It's as though the order never took place.
