Do I need to remove the airbrick and place new bricks then drill a 125mm hole again? Or any other ways any help would be appreciated Thanks

    No, cut new bricks around the new duct. Use a length of solid 125mm pipe, you can buy em in 300mm lengths or thereabouts

    Cannot see from the images posted, But? Is the cavity blocked of around within the wall?

    If not you have been venting all that air into the cavity and not directly to the outside?
