Hi Heatherlalor

Could you confirm is this a socket that you plug into or is it a switch that switches a light on or off? You refer to both in your question so a bit confusing!

It,s a double switch. There are two black wires with red sleeves, two pink wires and one yellow/green which is connected to the inside of the metal box.
