Thanks for the reply.The part I cannot get is the top third of the photo where it seems to have a white cast over it.I can manage the rest.I do not know where the white and the 10 came from.

That image reminds me of the effect I have seen when pictures taken with an "old-fashioned" film camera have a problem, usually with 35mm film, where the film is not wound far enough along the unexposed part before the next picture is taken.  IOW, what you are seeing is the image you want and half of the next, or previous, image which was taken.

In my experience, this could be especially a problem with film for slides.  I have a number of slides in my personal "archive" where, either the images overlap, as in your case, or the slide positive has been "trimmed" to remove the overlapped area, hence a slide which projects with "empty" (= white) areas.

I'm honestly not sure how or even if you can rectify this problem.

You can try out the remove dust filter together with some levels adjustments in order to remove or milder that white area.

You can also try the haze removal filter. I just put a rectangular marquee around the whitish area to apply the haze filter once, but you may need to apply adjustments more than once and, of course the image you have is far better as a starting point than just working on a quick screen copy like I did.
Do you want to keep the notice board in the background? You might play around with the wall texture from the left hand side to eliminate the "10".

Make a rectangular marquee around the top third white area and copy & paste to a new layer. On that layer add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment and lower brightness down to about -46, raise contrast to about 67 (try to match the blues in the girl's shirt)

The rest is mostly cloning

The more time you spend on it the better results you will get

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Carl123's solution is better and yes the more time you spend the better your results will be.
I suggest you avoid using regular shapes if you are going to clone the background.
