Exclamation Running Power to shed+lights+socket

I want to run power from an existing socket to power 1 double plug and a 2gang 2way light switch controlling 2 internal and 2 external lights.

I searched through my box of electrical stuff and came up this this idea..

I plan to run the wire out through the external wall into conduit and run it (buried about 500mm) alongside the footpath down to the shed.

In the shed will be a MCB-RCD combo switch
I have 10mm (two core + earth) for the main supply and 6mm (two core + earth) for the light/socket circuits.

The lights are all 60w bulkheads lights.

Is this possible with the things I have or will I need to get some more?

Your talking UK wiring. This site is mostly dealing with North America wiring . There are one or two former European electricains who come around. If you wait long enough they might find this post.
