I locked and left the car for a while and it started up straightaway. However, since it had occurred more than three times in as many days I had the dealership look at it. They replaced a sensor on the steering column (some people have reported that the solution requires replacing the whole steering column).

Hope you get it fixed pronto. My SA said it's a known problem that need rectification quickly because it's a safety issue. (Her words).
That's interesting and thanks for the info,I plan to talk to the dealer today.
