TWO people have had a lucky escape, with neither suffering any injury despite the car they were travelling in colliding with a wall this afternoon, Friday, in Bricket Wood.

The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) were alerted to the crash at Five Acres Avenue at 2.19pm.

Ambulance crews from Hemel Hempstead and St Albans attended the scene.

EEAST spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The initial 999 call we received stated a car had crashed through a house but on arrival it was evident that the car had collided with a garden wall, and there were no injuries.”

A spokesman for Herts Police said the removal of the Vauxhall Corsa from the brick wall is currently underway.

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.


Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
