Pic 5: Other end of the 5A twin wire, going into a bird's nest of wires and choc-blocs, in a box with no cover. Note the 3 original wires entering. Note the wires cemented directly into the wall, and the use of high-tech automotive masking tape. Are those porcelain fuses 'dead'? - dunno, and I'm not touching them to find out!.
Obviously this can't be ignored and I' ve arranged for a registered (brit) electrician to put in a safe temporary supply, work commences shortly. Meanwhile, I've got the house key and the supply is off.
