lights will not turn off ???

Had this problem a few times!!!!. Turned the ignition off and removed the key, then notice I have left the lights on so I turn the switch off but noting goes off!! . Then I notice the headlights are still on........and they normally go off with the ignition. Only way I can get them to work properly is to turn the ignition a few times then it all pops back to normal. Anyone any ideas? Its a r50 cooper with Xeon headlamps.

Have heard of similar problems on Mini's when moisture has got inside a light module or wiring connector.......possibly caused by all the rain we have had recently so might be worth checking?
