Two lanes have reopened on the M25 anti-clockwise following a car fire near to St Albans.

Police were called around 1.13pm to reports a BMW was alight on the hard shoulder between junctions 21A and 22, and smoke was drifting across the highway.

Firefighters from St Albans and Garston used a hose reel to extinguish the blaze, which they achieved by 1.37pm.

It is not believed anyone was injured.

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.
