Default X-Type 2.2 Diesel Limp Home Mode Problem

I have a UK model X-Type 2.2 Diesel Manual on a 57 plate(2007)

It runs fine and has done for the past two years withregular servicing. Recently it has developed a pain in the backside issue bygoing into “limp home” mode.
The temperature gauge has sometimes gone straight up to thetop red and back down again (within a few seconds) and once the limp home modestarts, the fans start running at full speed.

There is no bad smoke and no misfires. Whilst in limp mode,I can put my foot down on the accelerator and the car will speed up veryslowly. Pulling away from the lights is a real pain.
If I turn off the engine and leave it, the fans willcontinue to run for 5-10 min, but if I turn off the engine, start it again,turn off a 2nd time and turn start up again, the fans stop and I cancontinue my journey with normal power and speed.

It happens at different times, hot or cold, fast or slow,however it is becoming more frequent. Sometimes I can drive for 50 miles, othertimes it will happen 2 or 3 times over a 5 mile journey.
It happens even when I’ve only just started the journey, 5min into it.

I don’t have any lights on the dash, no messages in thescreen and the temp gauge is normally at ¼ once the engine has warmed up.
I had been suspecting a faulty temp sensor however ithappens even when the temp gauge says the car is cold. As a restart (x2) solvesit for a short while, could I have a computer problem?

Any advice as to where to start looking would be very much appreciated.
All the best,
