A 7.5 tonne furniture lorry caught alight on a St Albans roundabout this afternoon.

At about 4pm, firefighters in two engines rushed to the Park Street roundabout to extinguish the blaze with a hose reel.

The flames were put out by 4.30pm and no people were injured. Herts police had closed roads in the area because of debris, but they are now back open.

By 4.40pm the lorry was no longer blocking the carriageway.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
