Unless your lights are wired differently to mine, the innermost lights in each cluster should be park and high beam. The outermost lights are low beam. And your foglights are the ones underneath the indicators.
In which case your foglights aren't working at all (no big deal), but your LH park light isn't working in those pics. So check the fuse I mentioned above, because the LH tail light and LH park light share the same fuse.

Ah ok, didn't know which lights were which tbh lol, will definitely have a look at the fuses tomorrow morning, thanks a lot!

Now to find out what made the fuse pop.  :D

Fuse 23 is for the left park lights according to the mk4 fuse diagram.

Like Louie has mentioned earlier, the wiring insulation inside the headlamps get brittle with heat and start shorting out. Perhaps start off with a new fuse whilst having the headlight connector disconnected and see if the tail lights work, then connect the headlamp and see if the fuse holds OR pops again. Gotta love mk4's hey......

Does the car have led number plate lights and led park lights?

yep, took it to a shop today and the fuse 23 did pop again, the guys said there are some exposed wires that lead to the headlight (which is probably causing it to pop?), and no power at all going to the rear parking light, so I'll take that to a electionics guy and get that fixed, nothing too major i don't think!
