Please can you close my question. I assume I will get a refund as my question hasn't been answered!

if you still want an answer then I'd say that this sounds like the battery is flat, the clicking is the starter solenoid on the motor moving in and out as there not enough power to hold it closed

so I'd suggest the 1st step is to charge the battery up or try a jump start
