Cash was stolen from a Harpenden restaurant by thugs wearing hoodies.

At about 4.30am on January 31 three men broke into the Cinnamon restaurant in Thompson Close before making off towards The Putterills.

Herts police are appealing to potential witnesses to the incident.

The men were described as slim to athletic and wearing hooded tops. One of them was carrying a bag and another was sporting a bright badge on the left-hand side of his chest.

Investigating PCSO Tom Perrin said: “We know that the offenders made off towards The Putterills and were also in the Westfield Road area.

“I’m appealing for anyone who saw anything suspicious in these areas or around the Cinnamon restaurant to get in touch with me as you may have information that could assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101, email tom.perrin@herts.pnn.police.uk, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The crime reference number is F2/18/244.

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.
