Overheating???

Ok...kind of misleading, but when I did drove up to Manchester on the weekend, I noticed that the surround from the hand brake area was all hot to touch! Is that normal? Its warm near the side of the hand brake but if I move further up towards the cigarette lighter its a lot hotter there!

WTH is going on???
