Can a leaky hot water cylinder cause time outs on a boiler?

My boiler timed out twice in a week a few weeks back. Turning it off and back on again makes it spring back to life. I thought twice in a week was odd but kept an eye on it and no problems since.

Yesterday I noticed a leak on the hot water cylinder. I have this contained until such time as it can be replaced. This morning the boiler has timed out again. Could these two issues be linked or is the boiler timeout likely to be an unrelated problem and just a coincidence it’s happening at the same time?
