Auto handbrake - push brake pedal???

The other day when starting the car it asked me to push the brake pedal. After that would not release handbrake when setting off. As though it had put it into manual mode.

When this message came up on starting for the third time I ignored it and after a couple of attempts it started with clutch depressed only (which is normal for manual espace)

Car seems back to normal now - handbrake automatically releasing and no message on start up to push brake pedal.

Any ideas much appreciated? It is as though I some how managed to put it into manual mode.
Currently in ns.thomson's garage:
Rover in Garage, Grande Espace 2.2 Initiale on Drive
