From your vague description it sounds like your starter motor solenoid is staying engaged and sticking. Loads of possibilities but the most common would be the solenoid itself (renew starter motor) Worst case scenario would be wiring problem (something causing start 12v feed short to power) or dodgy ignition switch. There are two terminals on starter; big main one (live 12v all the time), and small one (12v only when ignition is turned to 'start' position). Check these are all ok and clean with no damage to wires. Suspect dodgy starter tho tbh. Did one on my old mk2 with same symptoms.

Sorry Tom I meant to get back to you but was at a party and clean forgot.

Solonoid or wiring ? or return spring on the ignition ?
