i had the same issue, Oil light, stopped right away, checked oil and coolant was fine. Started again but rattling. so turned off. Lucky i was about 500 metres away from a garage so started and drove very slowly to them.

They confirmed it, cleaned, flushed and since then 12 months been fine.

Only issue you have is how far you went and how hard with light on, and also fact it now wont start, that said its a starting point and hopefully the issue

Now I'm worried about the possibility the engine has seized.

When I tried turning it back on, it just made a whirring noise and the RPM needle only went to about 300 rpm and refused to kick into life. Could it really happen that quickly? With me driving a total of around 500 yards (including the engine being turned off and on again) from seeing the warning light...

from what you're saying that whirring could relate to the low oil pressure so try the cheapest option first.  oil pick up pipe fresh oil of course and go from there.

Oil pickup pipe is not to difficult you will need a long ball head allen key as a couple of the bolts are awkward.

I think you guys are right I should definitely try the cheapest option first. Ill look into doing it myself.

Is it right that I would just hear single clicks opposed to  the whirring if the engine had seized as the starter motor cant do anything at all?

It should turn over. Chances are your battery is flat if it wont crank. Test the battery voltage

I thought turning over was everything up till the engine starts. it just kept the rpm needle at about 300 and just stayed there, whirring. Kind of like it does when I start it normally, but without actually starting.

I wont try to start it again untill ive done the oil. Will it know its "fixed" when everything cleaned and has oil in it and start nornally ?

Once you've replaced the oil pipe it will send oil upto the head and run sh*te for a few seconds and then run better hopefully.
