You say you only have 2 lives connected. No earth or neutrals connected?

ok so got continuity not shorts insulation resistance low but not too low at 16meg and again all I have connected or two lives of the ring no neutrals for any circuit no earths for any circuit. RCD stays on until I turn the breaker on. Never come across a fault like it

IR test done with all earths connected? Sounds like you have a path to earth somewhere.

If there's a boiler or other fixed appliance on the circuit check for reversed polarity.
