Drained radiators. system would not refill from header tank. Backflushed and bled radiators .

Switched system on . Pump then began to run rough and boiler cuts out within a minute. Both flow and return pipes hot straight away. Checked flow pipe had water through the emptying valve.

At moment no central heating or water.

Too many variables on possible causes, if you can't fix call in profesionals as it could be a major problem if you get it wrong.
