sounds to me you replaced it with a dead Battery , try bump starting it , have someone tow you around the block and let out the clutch with ign on . see what happens

the hazards flash and a bleeping noise when putting the key in - this is power going back to the alarm on turning the key , its possible the immobiliser is stuck on ,. defo try another Battery or use some jumper leads on someone elses car .

Or perhaps faulty starter motor?

The dimming of the lights suggests that the juice is going somewhere - which either means, as the Booster said above, that the Battery just doesn't have enough power, or else the electrickery's there but the motor can't turn for some other reason.

I don't think it's an immobiliser problem because if it were I believe turning the key would just have no effect.

Booster's suggestions should help you determine whether it's the Battery, or the starter circuit itself.
