The electrician for the bathroom has installed a new cable for the shower and installed this into the RCD box. We have reset the RCD but still no power.

    Can you post more photos further away showing all the boxes next to consumer unit that switch is not rcd but the main switch to turn the house off.
    Also even tho they haven't tripped turn off all the MCB,s and turn them back on one by one the power might come back on..

    Maybe when
    Maybe a cable has been dislodged in your consumer unit whem the shower cable was put in or could be a faulty mcb power not going through to the load side sometimes Turing it off and on a few times can reinstate it
