The way it should have been done hasn't changed at all and is no different now to how it was back in 2007
So basically it wasn’t done right in the first place.

It’s not hard to realise that the loads should be shared between the two rcd’s....

We try to aim for sockets and lights in the same room on different sides.... kitchen sockets and cooker on different sides. Upstairs/ downstairs on different sides....
It’s not always possible, but should be separated as much as possible.

Exactly how I've always tried to arrange it. A RCBO board will solve the problem, but it's a bit of a sledge hammer to crack a nut, and won't, in itself, deal with the fault
George Wimpy almost certainly paid peanuts, and you know what that gets you...
