Tax issue leaves me with no wage

I am looking for a bit of advice I am working for an agency at the moment called HR Consultancy and have been on assignment with them since 12th October 2012.
I have been on Tax code 810L W1 until this week when they received a coding notice from HMRC to change me to 810L – when they have done this their system has advised them I owe £188.80 tax – leaving me £14.99 as a week’s wage. I wasn’t notified of this until 9.30am this morning after payroll had been run leaving me no time to fix the error.
I called the HMRC who advised that they hadn’t told my employer to claim any Tax back and hadn’t done any Tax Calculation to work out I owed £188.80 – and they advised me what the agency had done was incorrect and to advise them to re-run my payroll on a W1 basis this week to allow me to get wages whilst they figured out how the agency had come to get these figures as they aren’t correct, and even if I did owe them money it would be April when they collected it back by amending my tax code to collect some back each week/month
The agency refused and stated it’s done we can’t change it.
What is my position here – the HMRC is saying what has been done is wrong and the agency have left me with £14.99 for a week to live on – which doesn’t cover my direct debits or even give me enough money to get to work.
