QF A330 locked brakes in MEL

Heard a QF A330 reporting locked brakes yesterday in MEL with the aircraft met by the fire crew shortly after.

Saw some pretty big skid marks around/past the rapid exit line on RWY 34. Are they still there?

There was also reports of debris found on the runway.

Another A330 in HK had a similar issue in HKG last week, turned out to be a faulty Anti Skid system.........

This isn't the first A330 to have this issue.

Another good one is not being able to release the Park Brake before TO!!

I'm sure a few on board "vacated"

Thought I'd get in before it goes click...

If they "vacated" surely they would be saved by the "anti-skid"...
