What would cause the loss of power steering in my Jaguar XJS?

I have a 1989 Jaguar XJS. Today I moved it off the drive for the first time in five months and it's obvious that the power steering has stopped functioning. What could be the cause of this, please?

Check the level of the power steering fluid. If it's low, there's a chance that you have a leak. Have a good look underneath the car to see look for leaks. If the fluid level remains unchanged, the power steering pump may be at fault.
