Hi I've been doing some tiling work and undid a triple light switch. While trying to tuck the wires back under there was a bit of a spark. the downstairs ceiling light circuit tripped. The switch doesn't go back on. It stays off. When trying to put it back on there is no resistance there, as I would expect when a trip switch goes usually. Any tips ?
Thanks

You have a short circuit.
Take the switch back out and look to see what damage you have done.
