Diesel P0402 Error Code

Hi - I just bought my Countryman Cooper D 2 weeks ago and once a day the Orange engine light is coming on. The engine error code is P0402 "Exhaust Gas recirculation Flow Excessive Detected".
Has anyone else had or cured this?

Thanks, Giles

Sticking EGR valve with the sounds of it, they get clogged up, you can remove it and clean it or renew it.
Problems with this valve will also cause the engine to stall or lack power if it sticks open.

I have the exact issue. Is this common? Shall I just replace the EGR? Do anyone blank these off?
