Police are investigating after four boys in their early teens attempted to mug a woman who was walking alone in St Albans.

The woman was walking in the Alban Way behind Morrisons at 7.05pm on Sunday, August 26 when she was approached by four boys, who demanded she hand over money.

The boys, all in their early teens, were wearing scarves which covered their faces.

Before the woman could respond, the boys were disturbed by a passing cyclist and ran from the scene.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

Anyone who witnessed what happened, saw four boys matching the description in the vicinity or was cycling in the area at the time is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/31266/18.

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.
