Kia - warranty question

We have a 2011 Kia still under warranty. We drive often, but short journeys - 1300 miles in the past year. Had a full service (independent dealer) last summer and we replaced front brake pads and discs but no mention of the rear brakes was made.
The car failed the MOT today and apparently the rear brake calipers have seized. The bill would be 500£ (including VAT) for replacing the pads, discs, calipers, draining the system and replacing fluids and the labour.
The mechanic thinks it's "lack of use". Kia warranty says nothing about minimum mileage or lack of use, and apparently calipers are supposed to last the life of the vehicle.
What should we do? Pay up? Go see a dealer?
Any advice much appreciated!
