Emergency services attended a crash in St Albans at rush hour this morning.

Four people were hurt after the collision on the London Road and St Vincent Drive junction at about 8.30am, and one of them was taken to Watford General Hospital.

Two cars were involved - a white Toyota Avensis and a silver Vauxhall Insignia.

Ambulances helped a man in his 70s with chest pain, a man in his 40s with a leg injury, a man in his 30s who had damaged his knee, and a another man in his 30s who had injured his hand.

None of the injuries were life threatening or serious.

St Albans firefighters were called to help with traffic control and the carriageways were cleared by 10.05am.

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.
