Thanks for your patience. Normally the arena to challenge an expert is in the court hearing itself. It however sounds like this opportunity was not presented as the expert was discredited.
In the first instance, if you have just had the hearing, and the final outcome was based on the evidence of the discredited expert, then this could be a ground for appeal. You have to be sure that the judge did rely on their evidence though, and for this you will possibly need a copy of the transcript of the hearing but most certainly a copy of any judgment from the court.
It could be either an error of fact or a procedurally unfair point, for example.
An appeal is made on the N161 form which you can find on www.gove.uk. You have 21 days from the date of the court decision you wish to appeal to submit an initial application.
Also, as regards ***** ***** there could be a claim against them, for professional negligence. You would claim on the basis of the harm that you have suffered as a result of their actions.
For this, a professional negligence solicitor would assist you.
You have up to 6 years from the date of the report to claim, so there is no hurry with this one.

I hope that this helps.
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court!
