Sounds as if you have a low / flat battery . Could be a dud battery or just needing a charge . Also need to check alternator charging rate is ok . MIGHT start with a jump start .

Thank you for the suggestion, however the battery is A OK, reading out at 12 volts on my meter, the other functions of the car are still all working, lights electric windows indicators etc. all ok, although it sounds like the starter morot is turning ? and the belt for the alternator is also turning, it just doesn't seem
to be biting or the engine.

If your battery is reading 12v , that IS your fault .
A battery is at twenty-five percent or low voltage at around 12.0
