Could be the starter motor not engaging possibly because of a flat battery. Do you have AA or RAC breakdown cover? Well worth it for a maiden in distress, otherwise you need a garage or knowledgable friend.
Yes i agree it could well be the starter. The humming noise will be the cars fuel pump priming - this is what it should do so no need to worry about that problem atleast!
Go to for an answer, give more details of what is wrong.

or you could always use some common and get a mechanic to come and have a look or dowe spend all day behind a computer screen
