My boiler wont turn on. I think its because the pressure needs

Resolved Question:

my boiler wont turn on.
I think its because the pressure needs filling, but neither of the tutorials online show the same fittings as mine, despite being Worcester. I don't even have the filling key, and if I did, there doesn't seem to be a pplace to put it.

Hi , the plastic tap that was on the top tap of the flexi hose has come off . you need to use pliers or a spanner to turn the brass part of that vertical valve to fill the boiler ,fill the boiler pressure to 1.2 bar
