What have you done so far?
Have you checked the basics?

Crank the engine a few times.
Take a spark plug out & smell the cylinder.
Can you smell petrol in the cylinder?
Is the spark plug wet or dry after craning the engine a few times?
Is it black, grey or clean?
Clean it with a steel brush, connect it back to the bougi cord, earth it to the body while holding it with a cloth so you don't shock yourself & crank the engine.
Have you got spark?

If you have got spark, put your thumb over the spark plug hole & crank the engine one or two revolutions.
Can you feel air pushing past your thumb?
If you have got compression go to the next step.

Remove the petrol pipe, hold it over a container & crank the engine one or two revolutions.
Is petrol coming through the pipe?

As Hermes14 said, start at the beginning - have you done anything (replaced, removed, refitted etc) to the car, or have you done anything to the key (replaced battery, cover)?

Do the following test;

Put the key in the ignition, attempt to start the car.

Turn the key to the off position and leave the key in the ignition.

Open the drivers door.

Does the car beep three times to let you know the key is still in the ignition?

I let my son use my battery as his didn't work and he needed to get to work , then a few days after I got it back it wouldn't start So I replaced the battery , that is all I've done that I can think would make a difference . I put the key in and it came up anti pollution , I had lights , radio , etc... but nothing from the engine at all . Next time I tried to start it , it came up economy mode active and I have no wipers or radio and still nothing from the engine . We tried to bump start it but nothing at all. Checked all fuses but none have blown. My mechanic friend put a reader on it and altho I'm not sure what it came up with he went and checked all voltage / power from everywhere . Battery was fine . But when he put his tool on fuse f10 under the bonnet and fuse f13 in glove box he said that there was no power to or from both of these.

I did the key test and it does beep when I open the door to let me know the key is on the ignition , however after a while it goes into economy mode again and then it doesn't beep when I leave key in ignition. I'm
Assuming this is just because it's in economy mode tho as the wipers and radio etc don't work either .
