Help! Accidentally touched two wires while installing carling hazard switch, car died

So this is dumb I know, but I had the car on while messing with installing a new carling hazard switch. Accidentally touched two of the wires, they sparked, and the car died. The car makes no noise when I turn the key now, and the AC and radio also do not work. Interior lights work fine, as does the clock and cigarette lighter. I check the fuses I thought it could have blown but there are all fine. Hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction!

Forgot about under the bonnet... blew a 30 there. Thanks for the quick reply! Can I pick these up at my local autoparts store, or is this need to be ordered from Roversnorth?

Thanks Again.

Standard fuses that can be found literally anywhere.

If it's one of the big ones, any autoparts store will have them.
