We’ve just answered a straightforward request from a customer asking for a wall light to be replaced.
Easy? Well, it looked like it would be until we removed the old one and discovered we’d opened the Pandora’s Box of wiring! What a mess. The huge hole was full of wires and the more we looked, the worse it got, then we pulled out a live junction box with no lid!
 
All in all the 5 minute light swap took an hour to make the wiring safe and repair the wall before fitting the new light. The customer was pleased, even though they are now a little nervous about changing any more lights!
