Why is my Vauxhall Astra going into limp home mode?

I own a 2017 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 CDTI SRI NAV. The engine light is on and going in limp mode. It shows codes: P2453, P2452, P244A, P226D.

Can you tell me what is wrong with my car?

Reads like issues with the diesel particulate filter (DPF). If a good run at motorway speeds doesn't help, you'll need to get it looked at by a garage. This will help you find one: good-garage-guide.honestjohn.co.uk/
