Cooling fan fault?

Hi all,

So after sitting in a queue of traffic for maybe half an hour or more yesterday I noticed the car nearly overheating.  When I managed to pull over to let it cool down, I popped the bonnet to look around.  The coolant felt very warm, but not sure the radiator was as warm as I would expect. 

When i got home, I checked again and what I did notice though was the large cooling fan sat behind the radiator wasn't spinning like I would expect.  Should this be on permanently or does it only come on when needed?

It would be prudent to carry out as many checks as possible on the cooling system, starting with checking the fuse and connection for the fan and sensors and also the coolant levels, hoses to check the difference in temperature which would indicate an air lock or blockage.
