The parking brake suffers from problems with the cable seizing where it enters the rear back plates. Obviously the condition of the rear brake shoes, and adjustment of them plays it's part particularly for those that forget to release the brake before moving off, and are reminded by the beep warning tone from the car.

thanks john had a look this morning and handbrake shoes are worn hope new set will sort it .col

When changing my disks and pads, I thought my parking brake shoes were very worn but when the new ones arrived they looked just the same, so I didn't bother changing them, so it may not be the shoes.
