So I was changing a lightbulb with a wide bayonet base to it. The actual glass bulb itself has come away completely, but the bayonet base and contact wires are still stuck in the light. How do I remove this?

Find a torch.

Turn off power to house, all switches and circuit breakers to off position.

Use a pair of long nose pliers or similar to remove old lamp base.
Fit new lamp then turn power back on.
