    Thanks for this suggestion,
    looks just the job maybe a bit large.

    I will wait to see if a smaller one is recommended.

    Just bought one from toolstation 79524Nightsearcher Trio LED Rechargeable Handlamp Torch Grey

    If you have it plugged into mains socket does yours switch on when the power goes off ?

    Google "emergency torch" and there are many options. Mine have died and that is always the problem. They may work for 1 year or 10 years but those which last 10 years are by now no longer available so you have to just take a chance.

    Yes it does, but you have to turn it on first then plug it in. That's when the light goes off but comes on when the power goes or unplugged.
