ABS Locking up

Morning People!
I was hoping somebody can point me in the right direction with this one. Theres a problem with my ABS system where if the ABS is needed, the brake pedal sinks to the floor and locks the wheels up? The awkward part is that it WILL NOT release the brakes until the cars completly stopped (Or just before)?? The pedal sinks right to the floor and doesnt return back until its stopped, almost like a fail safe of some sort. Obviously with all this snow where having its a right pain in the rear as i darnt use the brakes in fear that they wont release and someone ends up smacking me up the jacksy! Theres no warning lights on indicating any problem with the ABS so im at a loss where to even begin looking Has anybody else had this or know what might be causing it.
Many Thanks
Chris
