I am removing the flue and as a consequence need to remove the brick chimney stack.  How can the hole in the roof be covered?  Does it need scaffolding?  Would a cherry picker be sufficient?

The roof is metal sheeting like Metrotile, and in good condition.  I have been told the panels were imported by Cambridge City Council in the 1980s and are now not available in UK.  I really don't want to replace the entire roof.

I wondered about a fake plastic flue.

As an alternative to a "how to" can anyone recommend a roofer who understands metal sheeting roofs (Metrotile style) in Cambridge area?
