confused Ford escort 1.4L, need help

hey im new here, so im not to sure weather this is in the right place or not...

iv got a problem with my ford escort had it just over a month, i went away to a campsite last week and while driving midweek i lost all power to the engine, got a recovery driver out and he had a look an noticed the cambelt snapped, but he also said its highly possible that the pistons and valves are busted, what are the chances for this happening...

i could really do with repairing this car so any help would be great i live in the uk if its any help, but he said it would cost more like £800 to repair, is there a cheaper and faster way of doing it?

thanks
mike

Whip the head off and check , could be just a few bent valves .
