CCTV video has been released of a burglary which took place in Harpenden to help track down the perpetrator.

On Sunday, July 30, between 3.45am and 4.20am, a house on Mackerye End was burgled.

Two large Samsung LED TVs were stolen, but one was later found in a ditch about 30 yards from the house.

Det Con Paul Edmondson said: “I am appealing for the public’s help to identify this person. I would also like to speak to anyone who believes they may have seen the offender acting suspiciously in the area either on the night of the burglary, or in the days leading up to it.

“If you have been offered a large Samsung television for sale in suspicious circumstances, I would like to hear from you, as you may have vital information that can assist our investigation.”

Anyone with any information can contact Det Con Edmondson via 101, quoting reference number F2/17/1457.

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.
