I have just bought a new metal light fitting. Having taken the old one down there are the usual 3 wires - earth, live and neutral which connect upto the connector block.
However, there is an additional earth wire fitted to the light fitting attachment which is separate to all the other wires.
I have tried for ages to try an slide this into the same earth connector part as the main earth wire but is just won't stay in. Everytime I move it it slides out-there just doesn't seem to be enough room for both earth wires to stay put.
Is is ok to leave this additional earth wire unconnected or do I need to really persevere and try to get it to stick in with the other earth wire int he connector block? If all fails, what should I do with this spare earth wire?
Any advice much appreciated!!!
