Hi Steve,
several ways but if putting in new wiring to new sw. position easiest is to take L&N from jbox [ensure it is a feed cable & not a switch wire your'e going from] to sw.position. From there run a twin/E to each light position.
ie 3 cables down wall.
fit new light in vestibule, & get outside light fitted by registered leckie[thats the legal bit done]
at sw. put all 3 blue [Neutrals} in spare connector in back of box, do same with [sleeved green/yellow] in another one.
Incoming live [brown] link to both Com, terms of switches, remaining 2 browns go 1 in each sw, L1 [or L2 if sw operates upside down]
regards SPARX
