Even though I have checked the tyre pressure, the warning light is still on and freaking me out! Do I have to go to my dealer

The tyre pressure system needs to be reset by going in to the vehicle settings menu.

Page 160 of the owners manual refers, but basically:

Menu > Vehicle Settings > Deflation Detection

Press and hold OK until confirmation appears.

I have the same problem and no amount of "re-setting" removes the screen warning. Can I ignore this or should I return to Ford Dealer, from whom I bought car about 5 weeks ago!

firstly, welcome ;-)
I recommend you check the pressures again, the system should automatically reset after a couple of miles of running.
but since you have manually reset the system, it indicates a tpms (tyre pressure warning system) fault; and depending on the age of the car this would be an mot failure.
so yes take it back to the dealer, to sort out.

Maybe a duff tps valve on one of the tyres - that's what happened to mine. Fitted a new valve and no more warning light

If the light was on from day one, it's possible that someone changed a tyre and put a standard (non TPS) valve in. My local tyre dealer won't touch TPS valves and when mine develooed a leak, they put a standard valve in temporarily until I got around to getting a new valve from Ford when the car was next serviced.
