I have three twin & earth cables coming from the kitchen ceiling for lighting. Two of the cables consist of live, neutral and earth wires and one of them is live, live and earth. Why is this and how do I connect them to spotlights?

It is possible for the wiring to be as you have described, either through design or a wiring error

It is possible for the wiring to be as you have described, either through design or a wiring error. Therefore, you should get this checked out by a registered electrician. 

You can find one local to you here.

If you ever have doubts or questions about installing lighting, do not attempt to do the work yourself but use a qualified electrician.
