Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

Because the handbrake is operated by the pistons,they need to be pushed in and turned at the same time.There is a special tool for doing this,but usually a strong pair of long nosed pliers will suffice.Push the piston in and turn clock wise together and you should find they will go back in.If not,then there is a problem with the caliper somewhere.
