We had this on the railway bank (network rail) behind our properties and Network Rail must deal with it. Get on to them ASAP as per comments above. They move faster when threatened with legal action as a tip!
Thank you all.  The Japanese Knotweed is about 17 metres from my flat the neighbours flat.  I believe that it had been treated by the previous owners but I am in the process of finding that out.  I will contact the rail company as well.

I wonder if they would be so understanding if you had been the one cancelled. I'm fairly sure you would have been charged for wasted appointments!
June C
No probably not = I think you have to give at least 24 hours notice or pay a penalty - I noticed when I passed today that they now appear to be open - my 9th appointment is due next week  - watch this space!
