This builder has recently barricaded himself into a station building the he spent time renovating. This is due to a long financial dispute which has been taking place between the builder and the Network Rail.
He didn’t just stop there though, he also live streamed his protest on Facebook which has gained support from many people online. Within this live, he claimed that he was owed £160,000 after he helped renovate the building four years ago. The builder, Dave Anderson, claimed that not only has this caused him to lose business but it has also led to him having to sell his family home.
He describes: “I borrowed £101,000 on my house to do this project.”
“We had constant meetings with Network Rail begging us to keep working on the project.”
“They promised us the world and I was not bothered about the politics as long as I had my house at the end of the day.”
“I’m not looking to harm anybody or doing anything wrong. There’s no criminal damage.”
“All I’ve done is board myself up. I’m here and I’m here to stay until this is sorted.”
Take a look at one of Dave’s live videos here:
Dave is now being ordered to leave the house though and issued a final live this morning. Within it, he declared, “I’m not worried, I’m confident.”
“I wouldn’t put myself in this position if I didn’t think I was correct and above board.”
“Let’s just crack on and see what happens now.”
However, Dave has pledged that he will not be leaving though until he has conformation from the highest authority that an investigation will take place. To support Dave and his cause head over to his Facebook page here.
