i am trying to fit a new light switch to the light in my bedroom. my bedroom used to be 1 lounge, which had 2 lights and 2 switches, until it was changed into half lounge half bedroom with a stud wall. the lights were seperated, for obvious reasons. a conservatory was added and the switch for this light turns on the old lounge and new lounge lights. With the addition of another stud wall, the old lounge is now my bedroom, but has no light switch.

once the rose is taken off, it reveals that there are 4 blue wires, 2 brown, 2 red 1 black and 3 yellow/green.

how do i connect a light switch to this?

6th 2 red wires

8th 1 brown wire to lightbulb

any help and/or advice will be much appreciated
