United-Kingdom Can anyone tell me what these warning lights are please?

Hello
I am new to this forum so please forgive me if I've not got the hang of this yet!
I recently bought a 2007 2nd generation Mini Cooper and while driving the attached lights came on and continued to stay on. Can anyone tell me what they mean please? The exclamation mark is actually red, not yellow as depicted in the picture.
Many thanks for your advice/help/suggestions.

The 2 lower lights are tyre pressure warning system, the red vehicle lift means it needs a garages attention, the upper light is brakes and the exclamation mark I would think its an urgent prompt hey get this sorted.

Could mean brake pads low, brake fluid low, brake fluid overdue for change, tyre pressure needs checking?
Really needs plugging into a reader to get the exact code, otherwise youre guessing to a certain extent.

The very top light is the brake warning light. Usually this is yellow, meaning you have the handbrake on. If it is red, it means the brake fluid level is low and needs to be topped up - drive with care as you may find the pedal moves further than expected before the brakes come on.

However.... with the service warning symbol also showing in the middle display at the same time, it may mean there is an electronic system fault - for example, if the brake fluid level sensor had been disconnected.

The bottom symbol I have always liked to think means "Don't turn round, because there are two aliens sitting in the back seat and they have probes". Sadly I have been told the reality is that it means the car thinks there are rear seat occupants without belts on, though I have never seen that message.

Thanks very much for your replies, I took it to a Halfords Autocentre today and they said the brake pads and fluid are fine and they think it's an electrical fault which they can't fix. So taking it to another garage on Friday....
