Multi fuel log burner

We just purchased a used log burner. It has a six inch outlet and the space we are hoping to put it is in place of the old boiler that used to be in this property. The old pipe for the boiler flue is still in situ but is only a five inch there anything we can do to safely fit this burner. I've hopefully attached a photo to show the pipe that's in situ. Any advice would be so welcome. Thanks

heeelllooo and welcome Keido :D :D :D
are you aware off part j
and the need to comply with it ??
you need to employ a hetas registered person to install
or inform building control before you start install to part j and pay for b/c to check your installion is up to standard
Thank you for your welcome and your reply, yes I've been researching all of this and realise we have to comply with building regs etc and use a hetas registered installer, I just didn't want to start going down that road and bothering anyone if the log burner we've bought definitely won't be any good.

the trouble we have here is our opinions may be correct but not be the same interpritation as b/c or the installer
in general you will need a class one liner
also in general if you have gas central heating you will have an expensive to install expensive to run time consuming life style choice
in general a duel fuel rated at say 5kw will only give off around 1-2 kw if you burn wood even less iff you dont tend to it frequently

if your fully electric it may make a closer run thing
