That, from your symptoms, sound as though your brake fluid is at the end of its life...
Problems with mot, the brakes only have to perform at a certain level,, test figures entered,, and the computer says yes, or no,, ..
How were you driving before this happened? You live in the Pennines... if you were using the brakes hard before this happened (fast driving, down hills, heavy braking etc) then chances are the brake fluid has boiled and your pedal is trying to compress vapour instead of hydraulic fluid. Probably need to replace the fluid as OURS2012 says.

It was hard getting over my addiction to the Hokey Cokey, but I've turned myself around and that's what it's all about.
Currently in twodogs's garage:
2011 Grand Scenic III 1.5dci EDC; Royal Enfield 350 Bullet; Boxes of tools and spare parts I will never need again.
