When we turn the lights on our car - the brake lights come on instead?

My son has a Renault Clio Mk2 and has noticed a fault with his rear lights. When he turns his lights on, the brake lights are coming on instead and do not change or even flicker when he presses the brake pedal. Any ideas?

It would appear that the brake light switch is faulty. A simple enough job to check it out and replace,
