Re attach Handrail up stairs

Hi all, the handrail has come loose up our stairs and there have clearly been previous attempts to repair it so the holes for the screws are now much enlarged. Is there something I can fill the holes with to then re-drill and put new plugs in? Or can anyone suggest any good ways to fix this issue? It is an old terraced property with brick walls.

thanks for that, I'm trying to avoid moving it ideally though as will result in filling 12 holes then re-painting over and I suspect the paint colour won't match anymore. Is resin an option do you know?
remove handrail cover the whole length off the run with a length 4x1" par timber
re-affix and make sure you have a bracket every 800-1000mm
