A friend at work asked me to take a look at the electrics in his shed, RCD would occasionally trip out, turned out to be a very loose neutral going in to the RCD.

One thing I did notice though was that the 10MM2 SWA entered through the back entry point of both the shed & house CU and neither end of the outer sheath was connected to the earth bar and was also very loosely pushed through at the shed end directly from outside of the shed. I thought that the outer armour of the SWA cable had to be earthed at at least one end, if not both? Am I right here?
