    RCD tripping off 10th Mar 17 at 11:03 PM
    Recently my rcd has tripped off twice within a month. It is usually the same blue switch. Everything is back to normal and works fine when I switched it back. Am just wondering whether I should get an electrician to check. Thanks

    It might be one of your appliances that has developed a fault or an external light. Have you noticed the trips have been when it's raining?

    Can you post a photo of your Consumer Unit (fuse box)?
