In case you’re interested, dpf was clogged with soot. 
 

Garage did a ‘forced regen’ And cleaned it all out. 
 

£162 in total (which Included £36 for a fuel additive). I was delighted with That given I thought it might be over a grand if a new one was required. 
 

Mechanic said give it a run for an hour a week and add fuel additive every 2 or 3 tanks. 

Pleased everything is ok and wasn’t to expensive it goes to show

the importance of giving a Diesel engine a proper run

I had this problem a few years back with my taxi,

Can’t remember exactly but did a huge  amount of google 

and the is fix was something like running the engine over 20,000 revs for at least

20 mins to get it to kick in and clean.
