    I recently bought a flat and found that a socket was added wired straight to the fuse box the wires are connected with the ring mains wires is this allowed ? I'm not using that socket at the moment.

    Nothing wrong with that.
    Ideally, if you have a spare way, then you could always have a dedicated supply for that socket.

    That's how most of the rest of the world is wired (non-ex-British colonies). They use a star configuration, and not a ring configuration for sockets.
