Hello

I would suspect that there is a fault either with the master cylinder or the ABS unit

1st try pulling the fuse for the ABS ( located in the underbonnet fusebox) to see if this makes any difference

if this doesn't there may be a bleed nipple on the ABS unit so open that to relieve any pressure, re-tighten and see if the brakes then operate and release

if they do then the issue is with the ABS unit

if this makes no difference then the master cylinder will have to come out for inspection / replacement
