Sounds like the cable or the callipers are stuck, I take it by loose, you mean when you pull the handbrake back on it has no resistance? has the car been parked up for a long time during lockdown?

I had this happen to me last week, it was -8oC and the rear calipers where frozen closed. Fixed it the next day with a few taps on the calipers with a rubber mallet. Never happened to me before and i've had the car out in way colder conditions
