FIREFIGHTERS were called to a rubbish fire on a building site last night (Thursday).

The crew from St Albans fire station rushed to Lattimore Road in the city centre at around 11pm and found a pile of burning rubbish on top of an empty petrol drum.

There were initially concerns that gas cylinders were involved but this was soon ruled out and firefighters left the scene within 10 minutes after putting out the flames.

The cause of the fire is being treated as doubtful.

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.
