As above, try switching all the breakers off, then switch them back on one at a time until the breaker trips. This will narrow it down to, hopefully, one circuit.
Then as cjsid says, work from there to isolate the problem item.

help-any-qualified-electricians Help any qualified electricians O.K. guys thanks, will try that but what I don’t understand is why the main circuit breaker is tripping, but none of the circuit RCD’s surely the RCD’s should be the first to trip in the event of a fault?id=”msg”>

This can depend on the type of breaker, your main breaker may be more sensitive to a certain kind of fault.id=”msg”>
