I have filled up with brake fluid but foot brake only feels slightly netter but not much and hand brake is still the same its really loose does anyone know what the problem might be and have an idea of how much about it would cost to be repaired?

Many thanks
Sounds like something may have become displaced inside the rear drums - get iot checked out ASAP.
