    Bled my brakes yesterday and went riding today and the front brake is now biting but squeaking to Hightower heaven and has lost all it’s power. Does anyone know how would I short this? Cheers

    I’d say there was a fairly high chance you’ve covered everything (well, pads at least) in brake fluid.

    Clean the rotor really well with meths or something and give the pads a quick blast over a flame. If that doesn’t work it’s new pad time.

    As above all the signs of contamination right there mate, get the brake cleaner out and give those discs a good clean and change the pads

    Are all the mounting bolts tight?

    Sounds like you got brake fluid on the pads/disc.
