This was done more as preventive maintenance, so I don't end up in trouble with a sticky handbrake!!

Hope this helps
Struck me that the twice it occurred i had used the manual not the auto electric brake. Now if I have it right, applying handbrake increases braking force over the auto, so the cable may be in the sleeve a little more than normal, so sticks.

It's a starting point, thanks to everybody for your help.
