Poor fuel economy + running rich = new lambda sensors??

I've been told before that my car could be running a bit rich and recently I've noticed the fuel economy drop.

Is it likely the lambda/oxygen sensors needs replacing?
How many and where are they on the V6?
Where is best to get them from?
Are they easy to replace?

Not sure if any help but my ST failed its last MOT on emissions, about 3 times above what they should be, MPG had been pretty steady though.

The garage did a diags on the engine and showed both lamda's had failed, these were replaced and it then sailed the emissions, mine lasted about 120k so if you car is on a similar mileage could be an issue.
