upstairs lighting suddenly not working


Postby brentrobbo » Wed Aug 08, 2007 3:05 pm

For no apparent reason all the lights upstairs - with the exception of the light in the bathroom and a shaver light/socket - have stopped working. The fuse box has not tripped out as usually happens when a bulb has blown.
I have no idea how or why this has suddenly happened as no DIY jobs were being done at the time.

Has anyone any ideas please?
