The symptoms are master cylinder failure, but if it's just been near a mechanic 
I would check the brake fluid level first and then bleed the clutch system.
Otherwise, get down into the footwell, feel the clutch linkage and follow it to 
the soft rubber boot on the end of the master cylinder.  Feel the underside of 
the boot and the bracket the master cylinder rests on.  Yeuk?  Dead master 
Easy job on a LHD car.  Steering column out on a RHD car.
