Meet the man who stands to lose his life's work to HS2
Ron Ryall renovated a house that has been in his family for decades but has now been told he must be out by July
Seventy-year-old Ron Ryall is heartbroken. “I’m happy here and I’ve worked all my life for this,” he says, gesturing to his magnificent home, Dews Farm, and the wonderful gardens that surround it. “But now we’re about to lose it all.”
The contractors behind the High Speed 2 railway, which will link London, Birmingham, the east Midlands, Leeds and Manchester, have informed Ryall that part of the rail link they’re building is going to run right through the centre of his living room.
We’d like to hear from you if you, your community or your business is affected by the planned route of HS2.
