It has been a month since the car was repaired so I am now confident enough that the problem has been solved.
Surprise surprise...it was the head gasket. My experience with second hand cars is that when something goes wrong it is the head gasket, even if it isn't - it is!
The previous owner hadn't taken care of the radiator, which was in an awful state, and the knock on effect was a broken seal in the gasket.
Radiator replaced, gasket replaced, 140kmh for an hour without issue.
