Hi Steve,
it seems like a ring with 2 spurs from same junction box, as long as all cores tight in terms. no prob. box will be rated for 30A.

So long as your sockets already comply with current regulations modifying what you have should be no problem for any spark. But if your existing sockets for example don't have RCD protection then this would also need adding when modifying and it is this that bumps up the price rather than just the adding of a socket.
