Had an identical problem some time ago. Could be the earth strap has corroded. Try putting a jump lead from the Earth Terminal on the battery to a good solid point on the engine. Then try starting it. If it turns over then its the Earth Strap that's gone. Seemingly a common problem on the Clio.

Good luck.
