A DRIVER made a "miraculous" recovery from an accident when he was told that firefighters might need to cut away the roof of his car to free him.

Two Volkswagens had collided on the forecourt of the Morrisons petrol station in Hatfield Road, St Albans, at about 3.45pm on Saturday afternoon.

When police arrived, one of the drivers who was in a black Polo complained of back injuries. He was warned that the roof of his car might need to be cut off when firefighters arrived and he promptly got out of his vehicle.

He was found to have a Stanley knife on him and police arrested him on suspicion of possessing a blade in public but he has not been charged.

The driver of the other car, a blue Golf, was uninjured in the incident.

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.
