I was trying to chisle out a recess for a power socket in our hallway wall. It is a single layer brick wall and one of the bricks has come loose as I chiseled. All the mortar has come away around it.
Is it safe just to put fresh mortar around the loose brick? Is there any risk of the wall cracking if I repair it straight away?
Thanks for any advice offered.

Looking at your picture though there is quite bit of missing material, be sure to tidy that up at the same time. A small pointing trowel will help you pack morta into all those open joints.
