156 brakes sticking on

My 156 JTD brakes have started sticking on when the pedal is pressed. The pedal seems reluctant to come back up after being pressed. It will come back up after a few seconds or you can pull it up with the edge of your foot. The brakes are working fine appart from this. Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks for any help.

Plenty of backposts on this one. Seized caliper(s)problem hoses, master cylinder, have to give a stem to stern checkover,covering all components, but you may strike lucky, with a quick diagnosis, and subsequent fix. Have a shot at earlier posts.:
