Engine overheating

Hi - My car is a Vauxhall (Opel) Vectra 2.0 diesel 66k miles - I am having a problem with the engine heating. When I excessivley use clutch then the engine temperature rises too rapidly. I do need to use clutch, quite a fair bit, when I am driving through London or when I am struck in a traffic. Once I stop using the clutch (when I am out of the town) the temperature drops to normal level.

Do you
have the same problem?

Replace the thermostat. It appears to be sticking.
