hi, and welcome.. also a newby myself..

clamp off you brake flexys (carefully) one by one ,and try brakes.
if the problem does not occur with one clamped thats your problem area.
sounds to me that there may be a sticking caliper/piston ..

give it a try and let me know, Si

Hi Si
yeah tried that yesterday all wheel cylinders are ok. According to a pal of mine in the UK who is a MOT tester, apparently there is a inherent problem with the vito of a certain age and that is with a bypass valve in the servo , i will find out more on monday and post his findings . thanks for the reply anway
