    Please do not take anymore advice from your plumber regarding a gas appliance if he doesn’t know. There’s no picture of the flue (that’s the approx 4” white pipe on top of your boiler), which also wouldn’t leak through your light fitting. What I can see is a tiny hole where your safety discharge pipe exits through the wall. If you haven’t smelled any products of combustion, then it’s unlikely an issue to be worried about. Maybe get a different plumber in? If your losing pressure on your boiler, it would suggest to me a radiator leak, with it coming through the ceiling. Have you done any work recently, eg re-laid floorboards, new carpet etc?
