Default Weird and wonderful electrics!

Hi everyone.
Just joined as I am a great believer in these types of forums.
I have a Sprinter LWB, 2.9 1998, and the rear lights have developed an interesting mode of operation!
Side lights on, all OK.
Switch H/lights on, rear tail lights go off (no feed).
Turn RH indicator on, rear RH tail light comes on. Indicator off, tail light off.
Switch back to side lights, both tail lights are OK!
Guess it is something to do with indicator/light stalk, or wiring thereto.
All other lights (front, brake, reverse, hazard and fog) have no problems!
Any ideas anyone?
