I spoke to a diesel specialist earlier this year about my own tddi and they described what happens when the fuel pump fails, and apart from the fact that the RAC guy got it started again, it sounds like that may be the problem. I'm not sure if my reply is helpful or too late but I would get it checked out at a diesel specialists first as the pumps are very expensive.
