Similar to this guy back in 2012:

My 2005 1.6 TDCi mk2 Focus has a smell of diesel fumes in the car, which goes once moving but if sat in traffic it can get quite strong, esp. with the fan on.

The solution for him was the oil breather pipe was disconnected, so would anyone be able to show me where this pipe is on my engine, please?  :)

My memory is hopeless.
Looks like I had the same problem before:
