Hi, fellow Bradfordian!

Adding more oil will not help your problem unless the oil level was low on the dip stick - overfilling can, amongst other things, damage the catalytic converter (cat).

The problem COULD be down to a faulty oil pressure sender, but it is safer not to take any risks, just in case the actual pressure is too low.
I would suggest that you temporarily connect up an oil pressure gauge in place of the sender and check the actual oil pressure.
By NOT doing this, you risk expensive damage to your engine, and no true Yorkshireman wants that, do they!
I recommend that you don't drive the car until you have carried out this check.
