Residents urged to secure garden items in windy weather

Mark Killick, chief operating officer for Network Rail’s London North Western route, said: “It’s incredible to think trampolines from people’s gardens could fly through the air on to the railway during windy weather.


“But it happens more than you’d think. It poses a safety hazard and inconveniences customers as services can’t run until the items are removed from the track.“We’re appealing to people living by the railway to ensure items, such as trampolines, gazebos, marquees and tents are fixed in place, so they don’t end up on the railway during high winds.”
