Repair / replace flashing on old corrugated roof


Hi Everyone,
Could anyone give me some advice / direction on how to proceed with this job?

This is a garage roof at my grandma's that has been there for many a year and the flashing has come away from the corrugated roof (See pictures)

The roof is made from cement asbestos sheeting and will be staying there, my question is do I reseal the flashing or replace it?

Thanks for looking at my post.

PS I am dyslexic so sometimes the obvious is unobvious to me

I'm sorry but I'm not seeing a problem with your flashings. The bricks are sucking water and in horrible shape but I don't see what you are thinking is wrong with the flashing. If it's that lap you are worried about, just fasten it back in place. That is designed to shed water, it's not meant to be watertight.

Is something leaking at this time?

Pictures are so small it's hard to even see what's wrong.

Thanks OldNBroken, I cleaned up and rendered the brickwork then sealed up a few gaps with silicone sealant (On advice). This has done the trick, i.e the water has stopped coming in.
