I believe this shower was working like this, but it's dead now.

That's 6mm t&e the picture does not give it scale.

 

It was the odd split of earth wires that got me.  And the fact it "worked" there is obviously no RCD at source.

 

I'm not even attempting to fix it, as the front cover is broken, the 2 top lugs that secure it are both broken.

As long as they don't call a plumber, who will faithfully transfer the connection like for like!
