Door frame now loose - how to fix?

P

Hi,

We had a carpenter hang 4 doors for us at the weekend. Unfortunately in the process, he managed to make one of the doorframes loose - it now moves about 0.5" at the top on one side - I'm not convinced it was that well fastened in the first place.

Can I drill a couple of holes towards the top of the frame and insert some 6" screws that I have lying around (not sure a plug would be of much use) or should I just fill the gap with expanding filler?

Thanks for any help.

You could remove the top architrave on both side then make 2 thin wooden wedge with glue on top of the frame and tighten it in, then use frame fixing screw.
