[ROVERNET - UK] locking brakes

I have just done the rear brakes on the P5B coupe ( new linings and sleeved 
the cylinders only) and took it for a drive when the front and rear brakes 
locked on. Got it home by letting fluid out and then using the handbrake 
only. When I pump the pedal, with the motor off, it hardens up and the 
brakes lock all round, as if the fluid is only going one way. Any ideas as 
to what might be causing this?
Cheers Gianni
