Electrician pretty sure it's because of the lantern type light on the front of the garage. The wiring to it is a little perished, and it's also lose on the wall - hanging forward a bit and possibly letting rain into the wiring.
He's also spotted that the wiring in the garage isn't to code. light fittings (one strip light, one security) wired directly into the same circuit as sockets.
Given we want to sell the house shortly, and that would probably be a finding on a survey, I'm having him sort that as well. £160 altogether which seems OK.
