A 34-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of planning a burglary.

The man, from Luton, was arrested on Saturday, June 2 on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary, possession of an offensive weapon, driving while disqualified and going equipped to steal in Chivenor Place.

Police are looking for other suspects after a call from a member of the public led to officers and a dog unit searching Drakes Drive, Camp Road, Chivenor Place and Hill End Lane to try and trace the offenders.

They have asked anyone who sees anyone acting suspiciously, or suspects a burglary is in progress, to call 999.

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.
