Evening everyone

Had to re post as I started a post within a post:grimacing:

here's hoping I'm posting in the right part or I have started off on the wrong foot.
Long story
Asked by a friend to look at his friends electrics as the kitchen ring was tripping the RCD.
New colours cable
on 32amp B MCB
one of only 3 on the this bank protected by an RCD
5 double sockets
plus a bank of 6 FCU's

Before I went there I had him remove all the plugs plus and turn off the FCU's
believing that this would help narrow down the problem.
But it did not.
so drove to Leytonstone about 45 mins from me
where we split the ring at a double socket and we believed that we had found a the problem which was a bit of cable in the wall between one of the FCU's and a socket in the cupboard.
all this time the other leg was working fine.
So we managed to replace the cable and we seemed to be on the home stretch, when the other leg started to trip I been there for about 5 hours and it was 9pm by now so turned the ring into a radial thinking this will do until I get time to investigate further.
so left at 10:30pm and everything seemed fine only to get a call today saying that the MCB had tripped but not the RCD and thoughts apart from run.
