Question Asked: My VW Golf GTX_Twin turbo overheated last night while driving back home.

The problem happened last night when I noticed the temperature going beyond half. I managed to reach home but when I opened the bonnet I noticed the exapansion tank was full of coolant, not circulating and the fun was not running. I waited for the system to cool off and when I open it most of the coolant had leaked off at the pipe which connects to the engine (I assume that is were the thermostat is located). I put in fresh water and some coolant and it appeared to have behaved. This morning the same thing happened so I had to park it. What could be the problem and what is the solution? It is a 1.8cc 4 cylinder.
