What is the warning light that keeps flashing up on my Ford Fiesta?

I have just bought a Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost and an audible warning is intermittently sounding. A warning flashes up on the dash but disappears before I can read it. Any ideas?

It's the petrol particulate filter light warning coming on but it then self-cleans so light goes off.

Most versions good to drive, especially ST-Line but significantly more refined. Comfortable and practical. Comes with active safety technology as standard.
