i had the same problem i read on the internet that it is caused by crap supermarket fuel so you have to either fill it up with bp premium fuel and drive it for a bit or if you get the car moving in second gear and put your foot down to build up your revs to about 4000 rpm and turn your engine off (dont remove the key) then keeping it in second gear bump the car whilst it is still moving and the fault will clear and never return. trust me this worked on mine

Get yourself an OBD11 Bluetooth adapter on ebay, will cost u around £7.00 download the free app to your phone/tab plug it in ECU boss. Remove panel in foot well under st wheel you will find it top right. Any error codes will be stored and you can reset the them . Or it will tell you which sensor is faulty. Try it before you pay auto elec,rates.
