Same happened on my twinny, I've just left it. I guess the little spring has broken or one of the retaining bits.

This did the same on mine, The spring has snapped, I suggest you either get a new spring or do as i did and swap it with one of the back ones

this happened to my drivers door , remove the handle so you can see the offending spring and then go and find yourself a mountain bike and take the spring from the front or rear brake calipers chop it alittle and place in handle easy . it now works better than the origianal did as has a lot more tension on it (not to much) you will need to fiddle about a bit but hey want do you want for a freebie (took my brothers brake) .
