Check your calipers are in proper working order as they do suffer from sticky pistons. I normally get them refurbed with stainless steel pistons from Godspeed and they work a lot better.
Speak to either of these 2 guys for discs/pads
Alyn @ AS Performance 0191 410 3770
or
Ian @ Godspeed Brakes 01656 723060

Warped discs are a lot rarer than folk believe. Morte likely to be pad deposits. Try a few decent stops once it's dry roads again, legal limit to zero about half a dozen times.

And never sit with you foot on the brakes, use the handbrake.
