Bedroom light bulb blew, then the bathroom lights flickered and went out, along with the extractor fan. Put a new bedroom light bulb in and that worked, but the bathroom lights don't work now. Checked the bathroom bulbs in a socket elsewhere and they are fine, but no power it seems in the bathroom. The extractor fan doesn't come on either when the pull cord is pulled. Any ideas? I've checked the fuse box and all is okay.

Check for loose connections at switches, fittings, fan isolator etc. Remember to turn off the electricity before you start poking around though and check the cables are dead before touching them (don't rely on neon screwdrivers for this).

As Davy said - and I'd start looking at the bedroom ceiling rose (or possibly the bedroom switch, if that's where the live feed is looped in)

depending on how new the bathroom install is it may be fed off it's own rcd or fused spur in a cupboard somewhere..

Our lecturer says it's going to be common practice soon that the entire bathroom is off an RCD and the best way to do this is to take a fused spur off the ringmain fo the lights etc..
