    Looks like was TN-S but it now may have a link to the neutral to form a TN-C-S come TN-S.

    Doesn't look like the second fuse carrier is connected to anything. Is the second earth cable going into the service head connected to the neutral ?

    Hi I asumed it was TN-S but the 2nd earth does go into the service head so would it now be a TN-C-S? Many thanks

    I would assume that the neutral would’ve been identified on a new head. Would still say TN-S
    Could always verify by contacting DNO

    If you've got TN-S, why add? I'd like to know what's gone on with the earthing system as a whole. Why 'neutral' the incoming cable sheath?
