Just another example of what a joke part p has become. Whilst the intentions behind it are admirable, the majority of householders either aren't aware that it even exists or simply dont care.

looking at that picture mate, they shouldn't be there at all, you cant spur 3 sockets from one point on a ring anyway plus if you look really closely at the live pin on the socket you can see where it's been overheating.

Disgraceful he deserves everything that comes to him!.....

...I would love him to have to explain that one to the insurance company!

Cracking and signs of over heating at the socket pin (I cocked up here lol ;)).......I would leave him to it. A small job in that property could unravel a whole can of worms!

Sorry warren but i have to disagree, the right hand pin is the live pin, think about wiring a plug top, fuse is on the right side so is live pin.
