does it have a priming bulb under the bonnet if not then you have a lift pump and that could be faulty, can you hear it when you turn ignition on, you could have a leak in a fuel line letting air in

Have noticed when trying to get it started today that on 2 occasions after priming it there is a buzzing noice when the engine is off also not sure if im priming it too hard but a bit of diesel leaked from the top of the filter housing

If diesel was seen coming out of the filer cap that means air could get in , suggest you replace the diesel filter making sure that the filter cap is sealing properly.
