Car not starting after timing belt change, did drive home but not starting now


Torque Junkie
Ford Focus mk2
I had the timing belt and water pump replaced today on my 57 plate Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 CDTI.

I had somebody 30 miles away do it for me after finding them on the internet offering their services, he works from home but has no transport of his own.
After cam belt it started fine, I drove home 30 miles with no problems. However I went to start the car after it had been parked a few hours and it is only turning over but not starting.

any ideas as to why ?

EDIT: Just plugged in my basic code reader, got no codes on but under pending is ''mass or volume air flow a circuit range/performance'', I've checked MAF sensor and it's plugged in,
