We recently had a load of work done on the house electrics as two sockets didn't work. We bought the house last year but as you can understand didn't check all the plug sockets worked.

One of the sockets was replaced with a double, the electrician missed filling round the socket.

What is the best way of filling this in, something like Polycelll plaster repair filler?

The one coat type plasters are pretty good and can be bought in small bags. Make sure electric is off and undo the socket, then pull it forward with maybe a small plastic bag aroung it for protection. Once you have filled around the back box and patched up to original plaster depth around box, let it harden and then carefully fasten socket back. Make sure terminals are still tight while power is off, and don't trap any wires while fixing back.

Wickes do a good "ready to use" plaster. You can use a scraper or bucket trowel. Better if you switch off, loosen or unscrew the socket for better access.
