central heating pump and hot water circuit running all the time ?

last night the central heating decided to continue running permanently.....
main control panel lights off but oh no the pump is running and hotwater light on the valve are lit!
I started to panic thinking the worst, however some detective (web) work and a call to my dad and voila it was out to the garage with a hairdryer to warm up the frost sensor on the wall next to the boiler...

within seconds the pump stopped woohoo
need to look into adjusting it as it isnt that cold in the garage, it is however baltic outside (around -10 deg C at the moment)

apparently it overrides everything to ensure it doesnt all freeze.
