How to replace a plaster ceiling and coving

A customer in Digby, Lincolnshire had water damage to his ceiling from a leaking shower and asked me to resolve the damage.
The ceiling had to be demolished. Here is my partner at Handy Andy Ruskington pointing to the problem!

The ceiling was exposed back to the floor joists to check for damage.

Here is a picture of where the pipe burst causing the damage.
