White smoke from bonnet

Took my mini for a oil leak repair yesterday. The garage (say they) fixed the leak. I picked up my car from the garage, after 30 mins of driving the red overheating light turns on. I park the car for the night while I am almost home Still had to get cab to get home. Anyway the next morning I take another cab back to my car and check the coolant level. This was way below the minimum.
So decide to top this up with water until the maximum. I drive home and when arrive I notice white smoke coming from the bonnet on the left frontside
Anyone have an idea what this could be? another leak?
Bit over the mini at the moment

If they have just repaired it and its obviously not right take it back straight the way and get them to sort out what theyve mucked up, tell them it was ok until they touched it.
