central locking button flashing?

I have a 147 1.9 JTD got in it in the morning. and just noticed the central locking button below the radio was flashing red. it was giving 2 flashes and kept repeating for about 30 secs + then stopped. Tried looking in the handbook but couldn't see anything about it. Any ideas? cheers

I think this means the alarm has gone off. I may be wrong, but mine flashed when the alarm went off, the sequence may mean something and there might be different ones, but I think this is it.

I had this just today,
I was out shopping - opened boot - alarm went off - started my 147 - red central locking light flashing.

As per DK GT - not sure if there are sequences but it flashes to tell you the alarm was activated whilst you was away from the car.

Am I right in thinking then from the posts above saying that the light flashing means the alarm has gone off in the course that it has been left alone, that the alarm can go off, and then stop again? I thought they were like house alarms that once they go off... that's it, they stay on the whole time.

Is that right?
