Horn honking & car won't start!

Help! Iv had my fiat grande punto 5 years! 2008 model,
Iv never had a problem with it till now!
Last week it started randomly honking its horn! Like a constant pomp When the car wasn't even running! I had to literally turn the engine on to get it to stop, 5 mins later it would be off again! 5 times it did this! It has also done it randomly while driving & vice versa I had to turn the engine off to get it to stop! Anyone know what this could be???
Also now a few weeks ago I had a new battery I came out of work today after driving the car to work no problem, it wouldn't start! All the lights came on the dash & the radio was on as normal! But it just wouldn't start no sound no struggle just silence! I tried to jump start it & bump start it still wouldn't start! Tried it 4 hours later started 1st turn of the key!
Now I'm to scared to drive incase it doesn't start & I get stranded also living in fear of the horn honking & annoying all the neighbours!!! Any help appreciated! Thank you!
