How loose is your clutch lever? Can be sensitive if you change the lever for aftermarket and a wobble or slight touch / knock will close off the cruise control

What Lambo said, also check the micro switches under the clutch lever.

Rarely use cruise control as normally too much traffic. Did use once on the autoroute in France early in the morning when no traffic to get back to Calais in a hurry and it worked fine. As above clutch cable slack is critical  :305:

... had the same issue recently, and turned out to be the left-hand switch-gear at fault.

Had switch assembly replaced, and back as it should be.

Assuming other controls are working correctly (my thumb-wheel was also playing up)??
