Damage to walls after windows installation

Hi all, wondering if I could get some advice on how to fix this mess. Basically it’s an old 1900 house with old (1970s?) plastering. I’ve recently had windows put in, and on removal of some old wooden rails around the window, the old plaster has had it. Looks like several layers of it, really deep in some places (6 inches into the wall).

I was going to fill the deep holes with mortar, patch up with bonding and then skim. I’ve done repair and skim work before but this is the most challenging thing I’ve looked at.

I’m really skint so can’t really afford a spreader unless it’s 100% required…so I’d appreciate your advice. Cheers.

Why did the window company leave you it that mess? Or was you daft enough to pay them on what they thought was completion?
 
Ok let me make this clear - the wallpaper was hiding crumbling plaster. On taking off some wood screwed into the wall above the window, it's become clear the plaster is knackered. The photos are taken once I have removed the wallpaper and some of the loose plaster!

Isn't this forum supposed to be for people to discuss/help?

Easy day for a spread.

How much was the window, supply and fitted?

Had the whole house done mate - it was SafeStyle...the guys who David Seaman has sold his soul to. Cost an arm and a leg. Can't really blame them for this though...since I've got the wood chip off the walls I can see the absolute shite job someone's done on plastering. Some grey stuff on top of old lath & plaster.
 
I am new to this forum and this is the first thread I have come across. I was hoping for a friendly bunch but no chance though it seems. @Pablo77 was new when he posted and asked a perfectly innocent question and got mocked. What a shame! As he says, is this thread for DIY plastering and friendly advice or not? Everyone, if you cannot be nice, then it would be kinder to say nothing at all. @Pablo77 - hope you got it sorted. All the best.
