I had this happen on an old Peugeot, the brake flexi has been damaged / collapsed internally and is acting like a one way valve and not allowing the fluid to flow back when releasing the brakes. This could have been further exacerbated if you clamped the hose when changing the calliper.
I would change these hoses as a pair as the one the other side will probably be approaching the same condition.

Currently in A55ii's garage:
Megane Sports Tourer 106 1.5 dci , Clio 1.2 16v & A55 mk ii
