TWO teenagers were struck on the face and head with a bottle by muggers who snatched their mobile phones on Friday night.

It happened in Verulamium Park, St Albans, at around 10.30pm when the two 16-year-olds were approached by two other youths, one of whom asked to borrow a mobile phone.

They then attacked their victims, hitting them on the face and head with a bottle before knocking them to the ground and continuing to assault them.

The thieves took mobile phones from both victims as well as a wallet before making off.

The first victim, who was from St Albans, suffered a cut lip while the second, from Welham Green, had a bump on his head.

One of the attackers was aged 16 or 17, of medium to chubby build with short hair and bad acne. He was wearing dark tracksuit bottoms, a light hooded top which was possibly blue, with thin black horizontal lines and white trainers.

The second was of similar age, of medium build and wearing a dark tracksuit, a hoodie, possibly white, with the hood up and dark trainers.

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.
