Thank you for using JA. I'm Baz, one of the automotive experts, I try to be available in the afternoon on weekdays and in the evenings on the weekend. I apologise if I do not respond to your question promptly, I can assure you that I will respond as soon as I can. Thank you

Have you connected a fault code reader, to read the fault codes? It seems as though the car has gone into limp mode.

Do not have a code reader

You will have to take it to a garage to get them read. There are too many possible reasons as to why your car would go into limp mode so, technicians use the fault codes that get stored in the ECU when a fault occurs.

Ok thanks for that

If you can get the fault codes and post back on here, I'll be able to help you further to resolve the issue by going off the fault codes and using my repair data software to narrow down to the possible cause.
