And another overheating issue

Good afternoon everyone, I need the brains of the MG heroes here on the forum. The amount of issues this MG TF 135 sprint has given me is beginning to make my sanity look questionable. The issue I am having now is an overheating issue when idling. I first noticed it when I was on a long run on the motorway and when I come to a complete stop, after about 15 minutes of idling, the temp gauge started to rise. I plugged him in to my OBD2 reader and no fault codes. I am not experiencing any coolant lose, if anything I am experiencing coolant rise! I have attached a picture, this certainly isn't normal is it!? When he's cold he is sitting bang on the max line. I did a 500 mile round trip over the bank holiday with no problems... As long as he's moving and doesn't idle longer than 5 - 10 minutes, he behaves fine. The front fan is kicking in religiously at around 220f. At this point in time I suspect an airlock... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks
