Hi guys, I play from Thrash to blues and I have 500£ to spend and I need to get Soul crushing gain and awesome blues cleans, is there such an amp or an amp that I could use pedals on to get such tones?

if you don't need clean cleans (ie Roland Jazz Chorus type cleans) then http://www.thomann.de/gb/peavey_6505_plus_112_combo.htm is your best bet.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

If you actually care about cleans, this would be a better option: http://www.thomann.de/gb/jet_city_amplification_jca5012_combo.htm

And if you question if the gain is "soul crushing" enough, here's a recording of the 100w head (which has the same preamp circuit as the one in the above link): http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Ian_the_fox/music/play1072691

I had the gain set at about 4 in that clip.

I'm gonna second that. the JC's never really struck me as "soul crushing" the way an amp like an Engl or a 6505 does.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

pass on the 6505 man. i've got one, and you really don't want to rely on it for anything other than the hi-gain. the mid-gains (think crunch) are one dimensional and the cleans aren't really clean at all, and they are quite poor compared to other amps.

definitely check out the above mentioned traynor. its a tone beast, and its easy to get metal tones out of it with a decent OD pedal. also take a look at a bugera 333xl-212. the gain isn't really to my taste, but thats just me. it has a very nice feature set and fairly good "in-between" tones, especially when the price is considered
