In the process of bringing the mini out of its 6 year hibernation and for some reason the rear brake lights are constantly on
Any thoughts ?

Is it a hydraulic switch or a plastic one on the pedal assembly

If it’s a hydraulic switch it will be on top of the offside front brake hose connector near inner wing, they can seize as I had one do the same, just replaced the switch as couldn’t free it up. If it’s on pedal could need adjusting.

Try lifting pedal and see if lights turn off.

I once had a plastic brake switch on an old Ford Escort melt from the electrical current heat and then keep the brake lights on.
Note if your switch is hydraulic, mounted somewhere on the brake master cylinder, replacing it may then require bleeding the brakes.
