contact your buildings insurers to start off with.

Call your buildings insurer and ask if you can claim on escape of water. If you're covered, then they should provide a builder

Its probably that the plaster board in the ceiling has absorbed the water and become too heavy for the fixings - it'll need to come down and be replaced
