Have you fixed it yet? Is it a petrol or diesel ? If it is still not going take the air filter and plugs out (spark or glow) then try to turn the engine over this should get rid of any water out of the engine.Then put them back in and try to start.
If it is a deisel it might have bent a rod or jumped a tooth on the timming belt depending how fast the engine was running when it sucked up the water.
The air filter is quite low so always make sure that the clips are done up.

Hi, Where is the lowest point that air is sucked in? Is there any way to seal this and have it only taken in higher up at the bonnet cross member? It concerns me as the road to work floods sometimes! xx bigsacs

Don't have a "Nuts and Bolts" solution but sounds like you need a tube or "snorkel" for want of a better description. I know they fit them to Land Rovers together with high level exhausts. You would probably have to get something fabricated.
I have seen footage of Landy's completely immersed and still going but I don't think I personally would put my Berlingo through all that....

hi big sacs
did mean to worry anyone the air intake is fairly high on most of the engines.What I was meaning was the air filter housing its self is quite low and if it wasn't clipped on properly then it could suck the air in there but if it is on properly it wont suck in from there.

How about doing something like this?

I think you might get a few comments from the off-road fraternity though!

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
