OKAY if you have not changed or done any thing to it then
u could try the following.
for saftey isolate supply at main switch.
if u can take each lamp out of its fitting one by one to eliminate a faulty lamp that has dead shorted together.
then if that is not a remedy , examine pendant wiring of
holders for wear and short circuiting of bare wires.
if this is okay the problem could be some where on the
lighting wiring circuit , between live , neutral or earth.
if you can access the circuit to check for for damaged cables then that could reveal a problem. YOU should have access in your
loft to look at the lighting circuit. take up a good light and proceed with caution if your attic is not fully boarded . also look for rodent damage.
and signs of overheating or burning.
other than what i have listed , i think u will need to get in an
electrician with his test gear to find the problem , if you can t.
there is a chance that your mcb is not working and needs replacing
he would check this for u
