Poorly 156 :( sudden loss in power!

Hi Guys

My pride and joy has done it again, just when i was praising my 156 it decided to have a fit at me. I have a 156 1.9 JTD Sportwagon. Yesterday i was cruising at 70mph down the m62 when suddenly the car lost power. The speed dropped right down to 50mph no matter what i did it wouldnt go any faster. I pulled in to the services and popped the bonnet but couldnt see anything wrong. tried the accelorator and there is a horrible noise coming from the engine. My thoughts are that the turbo has died. Anyone got any other ideas before i go forking out stupid money for a new one?

turbo malfunction seems logical.
on mine I had 2 times in 7 years broken rubber hose that connects turbine and inter cooler but in that case my engine lose revs not total power.
