Hissing sound from brake pedal area


I get a slight hissing sound when I drive the car but when I press the brake pedal, the sound goes. When I release the pedal again however, the sound returns. Also the sound only slowly fades away once I turn the engine off. To me it seems as though some air might be escaping from somewhere relating to the brakes. Any ideas?

Sounds like an air-seal on the brake servo may be leaking but check its under bonnet plumbing first.
