Also, if you go individually to some of the Apps (via the settings), you'll see that many of them have built up a large-sized cache which is taking up a lot of space. For example, my Gmail app has over 40MB of files in the cache, facebook has over 60MB, Maps over 50MB. Straight away, that is 150MB taken up. I've also got various Angry Birds Apps installed which I haven't played for a while (yeah, it's a vice), and some of them have 20MB or more in the cache.
You can clear the individual app caches without affecting the app adversely and this will free up some space. DO NOT CLEAR THE OTHER APP DATA!
P.S. No screenshot shown!

Ok thanks, yes I have moved, chopped and changed everything conceivable, cache, backups, apps to SD etc but my phone is still crammed to the hilt. Is there anything else I can do, does 4.2.1 really take up that much space. I'm assuming that reserved chunk is the O.S.

Hmmm. Certainly seems quite a lot. My phone is stuck on 4.1.2 so I can't really compare the two.
A quick google brings up the following thread:
A Nexus 4 running 4.2.1, but somebody complaining of the same issues. A couple of possible solutions there as well. Good luck!
