My CPU is under pressure and about to fry :(

A notification was received stating the CPU had been running at 98.6% for the post four hours!

I rebooted and had to delete Nginx because it was conflicting with Apache2. All was well for a couple of hours and the CPU usage shot back up to 100%.

Where should I start looking to try and eliminate the problem?

Run the top command from the command prompt and see what is using up the CPU

I rebooted and the server now seems ok.

If or when it happens again I will certainly try the top command.

Meanwhile I think the problem could be with the London, UK Linode sever:

Perhaps time to try another VPS web host especially since the current Ubuntu 17.10 is no longer supported.
