It is surprising how many installations, don't go to the expense of neon based switched spurs.

(But a basic continuity test, in these instances can be a bonus, in verifying any real issues (where a neon may be suspect))

Its the rodents in the loft that are chewing the cable.....

immersion cable giving poor IR reading on L-E (under 8inch of insulation)

ended up replacing cable and they are still eating the bait !!!!

Another thing that can throw you is if an aerial amplifier has been wired into the upstairs lighting circuit in the loft.
