If its dripping with pressure gauge readings up to 3 bars then the PRV need replacement. The part number is 10025055 and you can order it here.

Expansion vessel has lost its charge or diaphragm has split. How to check? Find the expansion vessel at the back of the boiler and push a nipple down.

Undercharged expansion vessel can be checked by turning the heating on and observing the pressure - it should shoot up to 3 bars and PRV starts discharging excessive water.
