Ok Robbie I've had a quick search but can't find any thing related.

From my experience it could be a couple of things. My first thought would be a faulty master cylinder. It sounds as though the brake fluid is building up pressure and not releasing itself.
As a very short term measure you could try driving the car with the master cylinder top removed (very short term please) It could be that the air vent in the lid is blocked (unlikely). It could also be faulty calipers. Although it may have something to do with the ABS.

We have some very good bods on the forum who no doubt will have more of an idea than me.

Hope this helps a bit and stick around with us.

Kind regards Oily.
