PUBLISHED: 13:00 17 August 2018 | UPDATED: 11:46 21 August 2018

A CCTV operator has led police to arrest a man for attempted burglary in Harpenden in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The operator heard on their radio about an attempted break-in at Fitness Space on High Street.

They then saw a man and two women on Station Road and alerted the police, who arrived on the street to stop the trio.

The man, from Luton, was found with a crowbar and two screwdrivers and was arrested and charged with attempted burglary.

The two women faced no further action.

Insp Jon Roche said: “This is another great example of the police and council working in cooperation to keep the district a safe place and residents should be reassured that we continue to strengthen our relationship by doing so.”

• Paul Dennet, 29, of no fixed address in the Luton area, has been charged with attempted burglary and remanded in custody. He received eight weeks imprisonment and ordered to pay £400 compensation for the attempted burglary, £100 compensation for criminal damage and £50 compensation for assaulting a member of court staff when he appeared on Wednesday, August 15 at West and Central Herts Magistrates Court.

A few years back I was fixing a shed in our garden and had enlisted the help of my young son. We were busy moving rotten pieces of wood from the side of the shed when suddenly I felt sharp stabbing pains in my lower legs. Before I had a chance to investigate my son started screaming in pain and it took a few more seconds to realize that we were trampling on a wasps’ nest!
