A series of burglaries across St Albans has continued into the New Year after two homes were broken into on the same day.

Police received reports of a burglary on Sovereign Park in St Albans between 5.44pm and 18.28 pm on Wednesday, January 17.

Four to five criminals are believed to have entered into the propery by smashing a conservatory door window.

They did not take anything, and left the way they came in.

On the same day, a police helicopter and specially-trained dog helped search for a man who broke into a Bernard Street address.

This comes after a series of break-ins across St Albans, stretching back to before Christmas.

Anyone with any information on the Sovereign Park burglary should call police on 101 and quote reference number F3/18/133.

Anyone with information on the Bernard Street burglary should call 101 and quote reference number F1/18/277.

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.
