Help! Wipers taken over by demonic spirit

My 1996 defender 90 300Tdi has been taken over by some demonic spirit which
won't let me switch off the wipers :-(
Got in tonight to go to work and realised I must have left the stalk in the
'on' position but I couldn't switch them off at all.
The off and intermittent settings appears to have gone and they run all the
time, the 1st and 2nd speed appear to be unaffected.
My thoughts are, the switch gear on the stalk has become kaput?
Any advice or suggestion as to cause and cure would be gratefully
appreciated.
Thanks
Graeme
