Hand brake light stays on

Noticed this morning that the hand brake light stays on even when the handbrake is released.The next service indicator light also comes on without giving any other details.I'm hoping that the problem can be quickly solved.

Any help or advice is very welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Geoff.

I say that you might have an issue of brake pads/ pad sensors/ brake fluid or ABS/DSC failure; You should go to a bmw service...

usually rear wears out quicker if you drive sporty due to DSC...
