2000 clio

Hi everyone.
I have been driving this clio after 6 months off the road, car driving fine for 3 weeks, but today I started the car and brake pedal was on the floor and hardly braking the car as I gingerly made for the exit from my drive! I have driven it and whilst I do have some braking I couldn't stop in an emergency...any thoughts as to the cause? Also whenever I put the heater/fan or just the fan on I get the smell of petrol in the car. Have checked engine bay, no fuel/brake fluid on floor, and the brake fluid is a funny colour now!

Currently in cliosteve57's garage:
