Sound like it's starter motor at fault. With you saying it's after a long run there will be a lot of heat in the engine/gearbox this could be causing the starter to stick, like you say after half hour or more it's OK and short journeys you have no problem.

    Best bet is to just change the starter as even bench testing won't show a fault as not hot enough.

My van has been revving up and down for 2 days and would cut off while driving and now wont start.

The first thing you need to do is run a fault code test through the diagnostic connector under the dash.
