SIR, - I have just driven to St Albans from Hatfield along the A1057 and sat in a queue for some time due to temporary traffic lights opposite the commercial park.

To my surprise the long wait was caused by a new footpath on the field side being constructed for what reason I cannot imagine as very few people walk along it.

When you see all the potholes in the St Albans roads, it seems a waste of manpower and materials to upgrade a footpath in that location. Or is this an omen? We hear of large housing developments in that area joining St Albans to Hatfield. Perhaps this is the start.

MRS A.G. FENTON,

Berners Drive, St Albans.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
