Wouldn't Start...

all dolled up for work today and jumped in MGFT160 and it would start- it turned over vigourously, but would fire.
So, too late or miss my 07:55- My son dropped me to the station- first time its let me down since I've had it for 2 years.
Read the forum, I was convinced I didn't hear the fuel-pump prime, or did I..?
we try to fix things from 60 miles away, don't we?

Anyway- tried the obvious but all fuses checked and battery slowly getting flatter..
I [lugged in my OBD2 and no comms..?
I started to look at the relay module that hidden behind the ECU and found the culprit- a broken wire , snagged in the main wiring loom going to the back.

Easy fix, glad i didn't call the AA as they would have struggled, i think.
After stripping and soldering, re-insulating- I've drilled a small hole in the inner wing to table-tie it all out the way of the boot hinge..
