Emergency plumber pricing

Hi, Got back from holiday to find ceiling cracked and water drenched. Called plumber at midnight. They came went through ceiling and checked upstairs flat. No cause found or remedial work carried out. Was charged £195, live in Manchester. Was overwhelmed as just moved in, back from being away and women living alone. Was I overcharged?

If you called a plumber at midnight, then his price will be high and you should have asked if there will be a call out charge or not. Usually there is always a call out charge on all emergency

My opinion says yes but this would depend on how long the plumber was there looking for a problem so with current information not able to say whether you were indeed overcharged
