The most likely scenario is that when the wall lights were fitted, the electrician protected the circuit (as required by latest building regs), possibly using an existing breaker. If this is the case, this may have overloaded this particular circuit.

The lights were either installed incorrectly, or some damage has occurred to your wiring or lights. Just as ka-goulden suggests, get an electrician to check and test.
