I want to make a light fitting with three bulbs that plugs into the mains. I've attached a circuit diagram of what I had in mind. I put it together, plugged in the last bulb on the circuit only (i.e. the one on the far right of the diagram), but when I turned on the power it tripped the main switch on my consumer unit.
What did I do wrong? Is there a better way to achieve the same result?
