Can anyone help? Changing socket and I have red, pink - tow of each as its a double switch socket, and yellow/green(this is connected to box) - which is live and neutral. I am wanting to swap with a double dimmer.

Hi Heatherlalor

Could you confirm is this a socket that you plug into or is it a switch that switches a light on or off? You refer to both in your question so a bit confusing!

It,s a double switch. There are two black wires with red sleeves, two pink wires and one yellow/green which is connected to the inside of the metal box.
