Seller didn't tell me that the van I bought needed work done - where do I stand?

I recently brought a Ford Transit Tipper. After a day, it's come to my attention that it needs a lot of work doing to it. I spoke to the trade seller and he advises me it needs welding. He didn't put this in the advert and never told me when I brought it. Where do I stand, can I take it back?
