Just check that the cut out switch hasn't activated. Can't remember where the reset button is, but normally in one of the footweels near the front bottom corner of the doors. There should be a flap with a button behind it.

 

If its not that it could be a fuse.

Thanks mate I've checked these things,there ok
It's as if the key isn't recognised and the starter and fuel pump have been cut off.

You may have to get a Ford main dealer or an auto locksmith to reset it/ re code it  before it will start again

 

Do you have an OBD2 code reader?

Sounds like an immobiliser fault to me.
