Thameslink commuters are being warned to expect delays of up to 35 minutes between London St Pancras and St Albans due to an earlier problem at West Hampstead.

A spokesman for Govia Thameslink confirmed that a technical problem at West Hampstead between 2.40pm and 3.45pm is causing disruption that is expected to last until at least 5.15pm.

He said: “There are two southbound lines running between that station, fast and slow, and there was a problem on the slow line, which meant that the majority of trains had to be fast-tracked from Radlett.

“It caused a lot of congestion and this has meant there is still disruption on the line with delays of up to 35 minutes.”

He advised commuters heading towards St Albans can alternatively travel from London King’s Cross to Hatfield and take the bus from there.

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.
