Exclamation Unknown Issue When Refining Mesh in Area of Interest

I am currently investigating the effect of surface contamination over a laminar flow aerofoil (S1210). When using snappyHexMesh to refine the mesh around the aerofoil and wake zone, snappyHexMesh will only refine the aerofoil - but not the wake zone.

I have tried to fix this following the tutorial resources available for OpenFOAM but nothing has helped. Can anyone offer advice on why this might be/how to resolve the issue? I have defined the bounding box large enough to be included in the refinement area and I'm not sure how to proceed.

Thanks in advance,
