A resident has spoken of his fury after a wall belonging to National Rail Networks has collapsed and damaged his garages.

Mr Joe Zoledziejewski, of Crossley Hill, Salterhebble, Halifax, wants the rail company to accept responsibility for and repair the damage to the row of garages he rents out, behind his property.

Three out of the six joined garages have been damaged by the fallen wall.

The 30 foot boundary wall, supporting railway line and lock-up garages, collapsed one-year-ago, said Mr Zoledziejewski.

“I have contacted National Rail and seem to be getting passed from pillar to post, for the last year.

“Although they did contact me last week to give me contact details for the claims department.

“It’s their wall and therefore they should fix the damage,” he said.

On Sunday December 29, at around 5am, trees along the banking were cut by the railway company.

“Since the trees were cut - the damage is more visible.

“The line below the wall is the main London line - there is now a danger incase rubble falls on the passing train.”

A Network Rail spokesman said: “This resident has been provided with details of our claims team and any correspondence will be processed through our usual channels. Our local team will carry out a site assessment in order for a repair to be completed.”
