1.8 Tdci Stall.

Seeing as the MOT and service was due next month I just moved it forward the this last week for new battery, full service and MOT.
Picked the car up Thursday evening just as the mechanic was taking it out for a short test drive, so I know he had drove it a few miles. I drove the car the one and half miles home no problems, apart from a smell of diesel that I expected as the fuel filter had been changed.
Went out Friday lunch the car started immediately the key turned, all good. Waited for the missus to come out and suddenly after a minute or so the car stopped dead, no spluttering or misfire just stopped as if I'd turned the key off.
Tried to restart, spun over great with the new battery but nothing, called the mechanic out he gave it a quick spin on the starter but no luck. So it was on the back of the breakdown truck back to the garage till they can have a look on Monday.
Now I have used this garage for years and they have always been very good and thorough so I'm hoping it''s something simple.
Any ideas ?
