Renault Modus brake light issues

I am having an issue with my brake lights. The just do not work as of yesterday. All the other lights in the rear cluster do work except the brake lights including the central brake lights at the top of the tailgate. I have replaced the bulbs, and inspected the brake light switch on the brake pedal which looks fine and travels well. I have also checked the fuses in the glove compartment which all seem to be okay. I'm completely dumbfounded as to what the issue may be.
Because the centre rear brake light works, it can't be the brake light switch. I'd guess it's the individual earths from the brake light bayonets in the clusters to the car body.
