    Robert, while you are at it, please sort out that bare copper conductor showing on the neutral terminal.

    Thanks for the replies I'll sort the bare wire when I change the switch.the new switch doesn't have the terminals for the two small white wires but it still has a light on the front so do I just connect the other cables as normal thanks

    It may seem obvious, but make sure you get the feed and load cables in the correct pairs of terminals or the neon will be on all the time even if the switch is off.
