the car works when push started so i think maybe the starter motor is gone.
Not something that needs to be done by a Renault gararge. Any indipendant garage will be able to help you.
I think a starter alone could cost about 130 quid off the top my head.

It is possible to check how much power the starter is drawing from the battery.
Put a voltmeter across the battery and try to start the car. If the volts drop dramatically the you can supect the starter. I would be surprised if it is the starter judging by what else you have told us.

Keep us posted.

Kind regards Oily.
