OK. Your only real option is to appeal the original decision but there are two problems here: 1. You are very much out of time to appeal 2. The evidence was available at the time.Furthermore, you had 28-days in which to appeal so even though the pack was only available shortly before the hearing, there was a further month thereafter to lodge an appeal. If you appeal, you will have to overcome the two points mentioned above plus the other party will oppose any attempt to get the case re-opened because this is not fresh evidence that you're raising and the issue has already been decided.I'm sorry that I cannot be more positive but I am happy to discuss further if needed.
