From Ford you'd be looking £350+.
Do you have key insurance with home/car policy?
I'd give an Auto Locksmith a shout but even then you may be looking at £200+.
If it was a Tibbe key (round with angled cuts) then it's a 30 seconds job to open the car and obtain the cutting code for a new key, the Laser keys (flat bladewith recessed cuts) it's a bit more involved but still a reasonably quick job.

It was the remote tibbe key, ive seen you can get the blank keys off ebay for £25 but not sure how you would get it cut or if it would need further programming for the immobiliser ? Will also check my insurance documents tomorrow to see if im covered or not.

As it's a Tibbe key a locksmith with the right tool would get into your car in seconds and obtain your keycode at the ssme time (the tool is readily available on the web but I can't elaborate for security purposes).

As you have no ptogrammed keys at all the locksmith would have to plug into the dataport and programme the immobiliser that way.

Getting your own replacement key will save you a buttload of cash.

I would strongly recommend you get two keys done as then you have protection against bring stuffed again.
Also with two programmed keys you could add more if you wanted for just the cost of a key and getting it cut (up to a total of 8).

If the missing key is a remote one, with two coded keys, you can also erase the missing key's remote code from the GEM, just in case. Again, how to do so is in the handbook.

I need to purchase another key, as i only have One for my car. Is it really £350 for a key!

A locksmith would be cheaper , and cheaper still if you brought a spare key first off Fleabay.
