Any good auto electrician should be able to find the fault. £100 to investigate and fix seems reasonable.

First off, leave battery disconnected with both terminals and leave for 30 minutes.
Bridge the two battery LEADS together (might need a jump lead) then reconnect the battery to the car.

Might work, it did for me
