Firefighters from St Albans Fire Station were called to help extract people believed to be trapped following a two-car collision in Holywell Hill this afternoon (Thursday).

However, a spokesman for the emergency service said that upon arrival at the scene of the collision, at the entrance of Westminster Lodge, no such help was needed, so firefighters gave first aid assistance until paramedics arrived.

A Herts Police spokesman said that the collision occurred just after 3pm, between a black Peugeot 107 and black Vauxhall Corsa.

A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service Trust said a woman was taken to Watford General Hospital for further treatment for minor injuries. Two other people were assessed at the scene, but did not need any hospitalisation.

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.
