Electrics appear fine, radio, dash and windows. There is no sound, click or other noise from the starter/engine. I did start the engine by rolling down the hill in gear

Sounds like a dud battery . Load test and replace if needed . Any fast fit centre like Halfords usually check FOC .

Thanks guys. The engine start is now intermittent. It’s a lucky dip scenario. Sometimes the radio will not switch off and sometimes my temperature gauge is not on. Not all three at the same time. Garage on Thursday. Think it’s the electrics board or brain, hopefully something simple. Cheers
