Class 2 light fitting - what to do with the earth wire?

I am installing some class 2 light fittings that don't have anywhere for the earth wire to go. Is there anything that I should do with the earth wire or can I just leave it in the ceiling?

The best solution is to leave the cpc as long as the rest of the cores [incase you install a class 1 fitting in the future] and leave it in the space for the connections in the luminairre. Place a connector block or wago connector on the end to secure it.
