Roofing Question

Does a single roof tile need replacing.

A roof tile has fallen off in a hailstorm. I have had a quick look and the rest of the tiles are completely intact. Does a single tile need replacing or can it be left alone?

ADR is spot on.The felt is only a secondary protection.Any slight holes etc in the felt and the water WILL find its way in.It is the tiles that keep you dry!
