In our garage/store I have noticed that since the extension was completed that there is, on the pre-existing wall there is a gap in the cavity insulation at the top of a small doorway were there was once a door. I have attached photos of this.

What can I do to seal this up?

Stuff some insulation into the open cavity (Cheap Rock-wool type loft insulation would do, you should be able to buy an odd roll)
Then cut a soffit board from a say 12.5mm ply same width as the walls + cavity and the length same as the doorway width.
Plug and screw this board to the brickwork.
