    just came across this whilst needing to change to a different light fitting.

    Gave up trying to what is what, and stripped it right back to work it all out, it was incoming feed, two out going feeds and a second switched feed to a wall light.

    The “Loop” was not Perm Live, this was in a seperate choc block behind the fitting!!

    Im told the builders electrician wired it a few years ago, im not so sure.....

    Builders electrician??....I think the builder himself has done it.....look, he’s even cut bits off his string line to mark the cables.....even the cowboys have insulating tape!!

    I reckon it's wool (as in jumpers - sorry) been used to identify those conductors. Wonder if it's that fire rated stuff? o_O
