Check the thermostat. Have the cooling system pressure tested and have the cylinders compression tested. Is there a chocolatey brown substance in the coolant filler bottle? Let me know

One major bit that I left out of the message which may change the ansewr you gave is. The electric fan isnt working. I went to halfords today to see if it was the fuse and it isnt.
The colour of the water is fine, pure blue.
Il check the thermostat if you still think it is the right way to go. Let me know : )
Thanks so much for your help : )

Ok. That does change things. The fan really needs to be repaired. The fan is controlled by the Engine temprature sensor. You will need to have this checked. Also the wiring to the fan and the actual fan motor itself . When does the vehicle overheat? Stuck in traffic. Or on motorway etc.. Let me know
