i tried to change my hall light. i took down the ceiling rose to see three wires, two black one red. the new light only has terminals for two wires. i know one is a live, one is neutral, and one switch live, but which connects to the live and neutral on the new light? i got the light working but now the switch acts as a master for the whole circuit?!?!? there are no other wires there apart from the three stated.

hope you can help am sat typing by sidelamp!
