A car chase involving a vehicle stolen from Welwyn Garden City took place in Harpenden yesterday.

At around 4pm police attempted to stop the car, which led to a pursuit down Station Road and then towards Luton.

The chase was called off for safety reasons after the car started mounting pavements.

Police believe a number of school children from both Sir John Lawes and St George’s schools were recording the chase on their mobile phones.

If any children have video footage of this chase, their parents have been asked to contact tom.perrin@herts.pnn.police.uk

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.
