this morning the switch had no lights on any of the ports - it seems to have hung somehow
one of my colleagues rebooted it before I can check the console and now I've noticed that every few seconds the link state is changing - is that normal?

No, this is not normal. You have problem with either switch1 hardware or the cable connected to port 2 switch 1. I would first replace the stack cable to see if this resolves the problem, next replace the switch.

I agree.  Sounds like a faulty piece of hardware. You could always trunk a port on one of the Gig interfaces of each switch to provide connectivity for the time being if you don't have another cable/switch laying around.
