Newly plastered and painted ceiling - crack already

Got plasterer in. Did great job, and then we painted.

2 weeks later and theres a crack half way across the ceiling. Can't blame the plasterer.

Whats best way to sort this?

Hi paulfoel
You may be able to sort this by sanding a 3” strip along the crack using a belt sander, down to the original plaster board. Fit heavy duty scrim and replaster the strip. Can’t guarantee this will solve problem - depends what is causing the crack.
