came down by-pass today doing about 75mph started to slow down as island was coming up i put me foot on the brake pedal wen i noticed it started going to the left so im still braking as well as pulling the steering wheel to the right to level my self up wen a nobba cuts me up at this point i had to brake sharp wen the steering wheel went to the left again like someone was pulling it(but i was on me own)
as i came down my street i broke sharp outside my house wen same thing happened my bro said that the right side only skid n the left kept going

could be a sticking caliper, which will cause un-even pad & disc wear.
I'd take it to a garage if i were you to have it checked (NOT KwikFit)

Also check ur break fluid level, if its low worst case - ur calip[er could be leaking, or a break line could be leaking or even ur master cylinder, but i doubt it would be that

it may just need a quick blast of caliper cleaner, you can usually get a tin of it for a few quid, just give that a go if ya can afford it & see how it goes
