A power cut has affected more than 150 homes around St Albans.

UK Power Networks deliberately switched off the electricity supply to 156 households in AL1 to repair a faulty piece of equipment.

A spokesperson from UK Power Networks said: “For safety reasons we needed to isolate electricity supplies for 156 customers in St Albans around 10.30am today to repair a fault on a piece of electrical equipment.

“Our engineers [were] working to restore power quickly and safely. We appreciate how difficult it is to be without power and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The power was back up by 1.05pm.

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.
