Sorted with a bit of lateral thinking! I wasn't able to 'fold it' with
auctex/latex so I did 'M-x org-mode' and then put a '* \section{etc}',
folded each one and was then able to arrange it as I want very quickly
and easily too. About 5-10 minutes and its all done and dusted! Then
unfold each section heading when its properly converted and delete the
star, and finally just do 'M-x latex-mode' and now everything is all
hunky dory again! :)
