The police helicopter was called out to help search for a suspect wanted in connection with an assault in Chiswell Green yesterday.

Officers were called to an address in the village at around 8pm following reports that a man in his 60s had been assaulted.

The suspect had already left the scene, and there were serious concerns for his welfare, prompting the need for a major search of the area.

A 37-year-old St Albans man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault and is currently in police custody.

The victim was tended to for bruising to his face by an ambulance.

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.
