How can I start the car!
I will be honest with you, which I trust will be appreciated.
99% you cannot start the car without parts replacement or reprogramming by a BMW main dealer.
you can try unhooking the battery for an hour to reset everything, checking fuses and locking/unlocking the door mechanically a few times, but more than likely the vehicle will need to be towed to a main dealer for a software update or parts replacement due to a CAS fault or steering lock fault.

Thanks for your honest reply - tomorrow I will get a new battery for the key and try to restart the car - a recovery service will tow the car to BMW dealership in Leicester if that does not work.
