brakes went on way home, pedel stuck up.

Coming home from work brakes went hard and did not work then were ok each time more frequent with a hissing sound coming from left front,
Brake fluid full and no leaks visible.
pedal will only go down a few cm but have no brakes.
Friend said new servo required, cost of around 200 at garage.
Any advice please,

Sounds like the air-seal on the servo is leaking - thus the hard ineffective pedal - not an uncommon problem. On some models it is possible to replace the seal but generally it entails fitting a new servo.
