    I know where I went wrong, should have taken pictures of the old light before taking it down. Stupid rookie error right there.

    I was expecting one cable with a brown, blue and yellow/green. I found I have that, but also a second cable containg a pair of brown wires. This 5 wire configuration doesn't match the diagrams I'm seeing. Any help please? What am I doing with this?

    Is there another light which operates at the same time?

    The cable with two browns is the switch cable. Connect one of them in the loop terminal with the brown from the other cable. The second brown is the live from the switch .

    Just one light switch, noting fancy. Thanks so much EFLImpudence, I'll give it a whirl.
