1st thing to do is get in touch with the 'check brakes' firm as they clearly owe you an explanation as to why they sent you out in an unsafe vehicle

for you to lose pedal pressure suddenly like that either there's a leak thats letting fluid out or there's a lot of trapped air in the system where it hasn't been bled properly
