The engine on my Skoda Rapid 1.6 Diesel keeps cutting out, its happened 3 times now.

If you leave the car for 5 minutes after cutting out though it will start back up again as if nothing was wrong.

The last time the car drove 550 miles before cutting out again, I'm on 380 miles now and I'm just waiting for it to happen again.

There is no fault code and the garage can't find anything. Has anybody experienced anything similar?

Did you notice that the rpm reading dropped to 0 immediately the engine cut even though possibly the engine was still turning being driven by the car? About the only component that can cut an engine like this and not leave a code is the engine speed sender and these are prone to heat related failure. Certainly if you were my customer it is what I would recommend changing.
