I heard dripping and at first I thought it was rain outside. After 5 minutes I checked outside and it wasn't raining.

I walked to the back and my dining room ceiling( under the toilet upstairs) had water leaking like crazy through one of the light bulbs.

I moved the freezer and toweled the floor up with my parents after shutting the water supply to the house off.

Now I don't have any water and I don't think I have home insurance sorted.

I know the main priority is sorting the leak and leaving it to the professionals
Any advice on what to do next?

Emergency plumber and then repairs. If you don't gave insurance then you will have to pay repairs. The important thing is to get water on. If it is just cosmetic damage then not so urgent. Be careful with electricity though as it was coming through light.

Okay Thanks, just what I was thinking. Will the plumber open the ceiling or is that something I will have to get done myself ?

Depends where leak is. Do you own house or is it flat. If flat is leak from above flat. Water can track along joints so it may not be where you think it is. Good plumber will sort it
