Sooo i thougtht ah faulty switch so i changed and still no light ' the rose looked old so i thought i'd change that but still no luck . So i took the rose down and put in three spotlights and suprisingly still no light . so i thought there must a be a fault in the wire somewhere so i got up in the attic checked everywhere and no fault no where . ive just tested the light switch it has power going through it so i tested the spotlights connection and again power . This is where i'm stumped i,ve even tried wiring a batten fitting up to the connection and still nothing the connection has two twin neg and earth wires and one switch live please anyone help cos i'm stuck thanks for any help at all
