i would say, check the iso valve if it has been turned off for any reason incase it has stuck shut.

u could try unscrewing the nuts at specific points to see if water is flowing through. or could be dirt in the inlet valve. or the inlet valve may just need replaced.

common fault. i have done 6 this week only.

If flow from taps is OK & no one's been messing around closing isolating valves then perhaps cistern fill valve may be stuck in closed position or clogged with scale or other debris. Might be possible to free it up though - push ball float down if its stuck in the "full" position and if water doesn't flow, try pulling valve activator outward. If nothing happens, unscrew the valve body slowly till water (hopefully) starts leaking out.

Sorry if this is too obvious a solution & you've already tried it.
