UK Exterior Light Wiring

I've removed a faulty exterior porch light and purchased a new one hoping it would be a simple unwire - rewire job! If only!!

Mains wiring is:
2 red wires, one black wire, 2 green/yellow wires.
Light wiring is:
one blue wire, one brown wire, one green/yellow wire.

I have wired as follows:
2 red to brown, 2 house green/yellow to light green/yellow and black to brown. I can hear the light sensor working but the bulb does not illuminate.

The bulb is not faulty. Have i wired this wrong or is the light faulty?

Many thanks.
