A CYCLIST was found lying in a St Albans road last night (Thursday) after a suspected hit and run.

The 47-year-old man suffered serious head injuries and was discovered on Homewood Road at 11.30pm with his pedal bike nearby.

A doctor and an ambulance attended the scene to stabilise him before he was taken to a specialist trauma unit at St Mary’s Hospital in London where he is still being treated.

Police say it is not clear how the man was injured but it’s possible another vehicle was involved that failed to stop.

Witnesses with information are urged to contact the police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Herts Advertiser comment

The word ‘consultation’ is one of the most over-used in the current vernacular - everything from small parking changes to major schemes that no-one can influence have to be consulted upon - but when it doesn’t happen at all, it is even more infuriating.

Christmas

A tawny owl.

To-whit! To-who! Who has not heard this ‘merry note’ on a dark winter’s night, perhaps echoing across a woodland or park, and wondered at its source? Of course, we know it’s an owl but have we ever seen one, I wonder, other than in children’s story books such as AA Milne’s Wol or Beatrix Potter’s Old Brown? Perhaps, a bit like the cuckoo in spring, we are familiar with the tawny owl’s “To-whit! To-who!” call but not with the actual bird.
