Hi all please can someone tell me if root rot is the cause of this problem to my plant.The leaves look like they have been scorched and there is nothing left to the inner parts of the plant.Any help would be greatly appreciated:))))

Not root rot but frost damage - its caught the new leaves. Is this plant by any chance Pieris 'Flaming Silver'? Because if it is, its particularly susceptible to frost damage.

It could also be wind burn, all the new growth on our pieris was burnt by the howling gales we had a week past Sunday.

Is it in a pot or the ground, Mark?

Hi Bamboo it is in the ground:))))

Just clip off the dead leaves from the top, and give it a feed with something like Growmore, sprinkled on the ground around the plant, and raked or lightly turned into the soil with a fork.
