    Hi telectrix,

    Ok so it's not a PME and TNS then? That's what my first thought was. I thought the right was a separate Neutral

    Would that be one redundant incomer, if so the newer (right side)is a split concentric and TNS - I love the 'cut out caption' questions.

    Edit - the CSA are too large for split concentric

    Hi Mark .
    Looks good
    what is it ? TN -S or TNC-S ?
    look like there is two cable feeding the service head very odd looking

    If your ZE / ZDB reading are as expected, I would FI it and definitely get the electrical company out to look at it, UKPN or the appropriate company for the area your in.

    TNS in my book looped to next dwelling, then some bodged affair, if that is TNCS , get the DNO out to confirm.
