Question: We are awaiting a plumber from our insurance to repair the boiler but meanwhile the hot water is pouring down our outer wall and stripping all the white stone covering away. Should a full-length pipe have been fitted outside to a drain?

If it is the overflow to the main water tanks the answer is no if it is a pressure relief copper pipe that has to be in a position where the escaping hot water will not cause harm to people or property.
