Coolant expansion tank fully empty

When I checked my coolant level this morning I was shocked to found out it was totally empty. The night before when I arrived home I noticed some smoke coming from bonnet. I probably take it to the garage for a check but not sure if it is sensible to drive it after topping the coolant up or towing it?

Was it smoke or steam?
Hopefully youve had a hose go just as you got home and its the coolant steaming from spraying onto the hot engine.
If you stopped it in time, and it was a leak and it didnt have time to overheat the engine should be ok once its fixed and topped back up.

It was smoke. So I need to replace the expansion tank or is it something else that is leaking?
