      That's probably because there isn't a number 1. This terminal is redundant anyway, so they don't fit one.

      Yeah, I had a look this weekend and there is only terminals 2, 3, 4, and 5. I unscrewed the next plate back aswell and there is only 2 cables coming into the house so I guess these are the ones which goto terminals 2 & 5. The other 2 must be completly redundant!

      excellent, so you do only need 2 and 5 connected then - no problem!
