Thanks for your replies!

Just had a quick look now and being from the UK, It looks like i will need another cable rating chart. I did find one online in the end and if there is anyone in the forum from the UK the link attached could help!

And if from the UK you have to consider Ring Circuits which aren't legal here but can use smaller than usual wire.
