    Electricians guide to the building regs has the best image for it, if it helps, sinks no longer form any part of the zones but common sense required ;)

    i think it was meant why would you want to fit it outside the bathroom ? a long run of flex if you fit it outside the bathroom and may damage the cable closing the door on it all the time ? just the way we read your statement i think but was amusing to me anyway
