Bridgnorth Town Council faces £750,000 bill after repairs to wall by cliff railway

From the Shropshire Star:*
Repairing a damaged wall that saw Bridgnorth Cliff Railway close last year is to cost the town council more than £750,000, a public meeting has been told. 
In an update ... on Thursday night, residents were told the cost to repair the damaged wall is set to leave Bridgnorth Town Council with a shortfall in its finances of £500,000. 
On the plus side however, residents were also told that the Cliff Railway could be "free to open" later this month.
This has been a long saga, but it's not yet over. The report suggests the council may seek to recover part of the cost of the work from the owner of the cliff railway.
