Tyre Warning Light Problem

Yesterday my wife noticed a red warning light on the dash, it turned out to be the tyre pressure (or loss of it) and we found that the rear offside tyre of the Clubman had a slow puncture. A trip to the local tyre repair shop fixed that but the warning light remained on. The mechanic said it needs to reset and would go off afer a few miles.

However after some 70 miles the light is still on. Can anyone suggest a reason? Thanks!

Youve not reset it properly I would think? unless they had over inflated your repaired one?
The system works on wheel speed/revs so ideally they all need to be going round at the same speed so be the same diameter.
