Hi Its a easy one you need abuilder to open up the fireplace and remove all the rubble . once its been removed rebrick the opening and replaster with a suitable plaster.please ensure that a air brick is installed to help dry out the chimney breast. cost wise i say about £500 including removal of rubbish.
