Police are concerned for the welfare of a man who has gone missing from St Albans – and are appealing for the public’s help to find him.

Craig Hodgson was last seen at around 12.30am this morning at the Clarion Collection Hotel in the city’s Holywell Hill.

The 41-year-old is described as white, around 6ft tall, of medium build, with short brown hair and a beard.

He was last seen wearing a dark hooded zipped jacket, white T-shirt with dark logo across the chest and dark trousers. He was carrying a black rucksack and white carrier bags.

Anyone who sees Craig or knows of his whereabouts should call police on the non-emergency number 101.

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.
