Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which happened on Camp Road on September 28 at about 8.20pm.

A St Albans Deliveroo rider who stumbled across the scene, Harry St John-Paulton, 17, said: “I came out of the shop round the corner and saw the lady on the floor, people had come running over, and it took the ambulance 15 minutes to get arrive.

“Poor woman - it was very worrying, and there was quite a lot of blood everywhere.”

He said he could not believe the driver had not stopped and had “done something like that”.

“I am appealing for anyone with information about what happened to please get in touch with police straight away.

“Have you come across a vehicle which has suffered fresh, unexplained damage or noticed anyone acting suspiciously? Any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, could greatly assist our enquiries.”

Anyone with information should contact 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

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.
