He'd also used a 1.5mm cable to take a spur off of a (ring final) socket which already had a radial circuit taken from it.
The installation is appalling, however assuming you mean a spur as opposed to a "radial circuit", there's nothing in itself incorrect about that strategy.
Absolutely no issue with two spurs from one point provided the conductors can be properly terminated.I think OP is saying there there are now two spurs taken from one socket on the ring. A hot debate may ensue, but it's not something I would ever do. Happily spur off to an FCU and take two sockets from there, but ain't jamming four conductors in the back of a socket.

'More than four' is definitely pushing it for most, if not all, socket terminals - I certainly wouldn't try that, and I doubt that many people would. However, as I've just written, in my experience four is rarely a problem.(Personal opinion - I would never have more than four sets of conductors in a socket, just doesn't seem right in my own humble opinion.)
You're certainly not alone in thinking like that.I personally wouldn't spur off the same point in the ring twice.
Fair enough - at least you are consistent (whereas, as I said, it seems that many people aren't).Nope.
As has been said, the only possible issue is whether or not the terminals in the socket will accommodate four conductors - which they usually will (assuming 2.5mm²) with no problem.
