Nothing ATM. I disconnected the circuit and reset the RCD to get power on to the rest of the circuits sharing that RCD. Doing a quote to put the outside circuits on their on CU with RCBOs and pricing up magic gel.

The yellow insulting tape was the "waterproof seal" on the plastic bag that was wrapped around the junction box :roll:

I am afraid I cannot get rid of the T+E without the customer paying thousands of pounds to replace/rebuild a wall. I am looking into changing the install to SELV with an internal transformer.
