the two common faults for this code is the egr valve is stuck open. you can remove and clean this -http://fordwiki.co.uk/index.php/Main_Page ( check out the egr valve clean under the mondeo section)
or the electronic turbo actuator return arm is siezed due to a build up of carbon on the turbo vanes, you can check this by seeing if you can move the little arm by hand when you remove the clip on the arm. but this is unlikely unless you have mega miles on the car. i would try the egr first.

I had the egr and inlet manifold off a few weeks ago and gave them a good cleaning still had juddering and seemed to still be smoking,do you think it could be split in boost pipe from egr to intercooler?. Only 72k with full service history how easy is it to look actuater arm?.Could i have a faulty egr valve?

juddering at around 1800rpm and black smoke are symptons of a split intercooler pipe.
