V6 Spider Engine Siezed?

Hi. I'm new to the forum having bought a 2001 V6 3.0 Spider a couple of weeks ago with 74K on the clock. Yesterday I took it on it's first half decent trip, 60 miles, top down, enjoying life. On exiting the motorway on the way home, the engine stalled and would not restart. There is a clunk from the starter motor but the engine will not turn over. I didn't notice any warning lights and there doesn't appear to be any fluid loss. The recovery guy said the cam belt and tensioners look fine (replaced at 72K service). He wasn't sure what the problem was but said engine seizure was a possibility. I still can't start it morning, same symptoms and I've noticed that the engine management light doesn't go out. I plan to get it towed to a specialist in Wolverhampton early next week, but if anyone has any ideas or advice I' be gratefull.
