Jump start F@&K up help


catastrophic mess tonight..

Long story short battery flat tried to jump start it as have done a many times before... the old lack of use problems only difference was I had to use the work van instead of the wives motor and it was pissing with rain so I was rushing about and not paying proper attention...
I'm pretty sure I reversed the polarity by not looking properly at the van + and -
bit sparky on connecting realised quickly that I'd f@Łked something up.. put it back the right way but when I jumped in the scoob to start it I got nothing no dash lights NOWT no power nothing.. Hoping I've blown a fuse or relay but bricking it incase I've done serious electrical damage...

Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated
