French / English Car Insurance.

We are considering the purchase of a vehicle (English) to use in the UK for the winter and France in the summer.

Does anyone know if there is a UK insurer that will allow more than 90 days EU use?

Ideally we need 7 months French and 5 months English.

Any input welcomed.

Electrcal fittings - working with them

I have a surface mounted combined light switch / 240v socket unit in light and dark grey which I am fairly sure is by Legrand. It is mounted the wrong side of a door and I want to move it.
