As others have mentioned its probably an earth fault.

Take the bulbs out of the rear light cluster and give the contacts a good clean on the bulbs and the holders. that usually solves the problem

What is happening is the earth to one of the bulbs (probably the brake light)is poor so the current is taking an easier path to earth and this just happens to be through the indicator bulb causing it to light.
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
