Driveways Question

Can my next door neighbours build a wall 5-6 inches higher than my drive?

My driveway is a little higher then my next door neighbours as there dips down in to there garage. They have recently had their garden landscaped and they have built a wall 5-6 inches higher than my driveway. Its not touching my wall, there is a little gap between the walls but its still higher, on top of the wall they have put coping stones, they keep falling off and I keep getting the blame for it. Surely this wall cannot be right?

They are allowed to do this, as substructure has said. I would tell them though to blame the builder/landscaper. If they keep falling off, they aren't fixed on properly!
