Big Sneeze today!

Driving along, just hit the motorway and have to pull off at the 1st junction. Temp soaring, get to Sainsburys and find my coolant dripping on the forecourt, engine dotted with fluid and steaming! Injector light came on, heater speed failed at all speeds as I tried to release heat back into the car
Cooled the car down and refilled the car with water. Level held, limped back home, injector light goes out
Got home, level held, diluted coolant colour so not pure water, drove to work 10 miles away, get to work, level held

I can only think of a huge airlock? Anyone got any other theories?
Thought Head Gasket but oil is fine, very weird

Twin Spark i assume? Air locks are not unheard of. Just keep an emergency supply of coolant in the car and keep an eye on all levels
