I think you might be in UK. Don't know about there but here in Canada it is called a multiwire circuit with a shared neutral. It is OK.

The UK electrical system is much different than what is in use in the US that we can't help you.

I did a google on UK DIY and there is on newgroup that it appears some otherr forums that might be helpful.
