Ever since i cleared the layout cache in magento my website now has a blank white screen i've tried to find the error by adding the following in my index.php file but returns nothing.

  ini_set('error_reporting', E_ERROR);
   function fatal_handler() {
     $error = error_get_last();

I would first try clearing the entire contents of var/cache folder if you haven't already. Then disable any custom modules in app/etc/modules. Keep clearing var/cache folder each time you try anything.

If you cleared the layout cache the problem may be that the cache cannot rebuild itself because of folder/file permissions.
