Broken sarking board

Heard loud crack this morning from loft. On investigation one of the overhead boards is hanging down on one side. I think the are called sarking boards. (Scotland). There is a black membrane undamaged above this and then the tiles. Can I leave alone.

has came loose then there might have a small problem with what is fixed to ie wooden trusses mite just need nailing back up
