Two people were injured in the three-car collision in Redbourn this morning.

The Magpas Air Ambulance landed at 7.48am at the scene of a crash in Hemel Hempstead Road, with Magpas doctor Natalie Lonsdale, paramedic Steve Chambers and doctor Tom Odbert on board.

Two patients were assessed at the scene. One, a man in his 40s, was left in the care of an East of England Ambulance Service paramedic crew.

The second patient, also a man in his 40s, had sustained multiple, serious injuries. The Magpas medics provided him with pain relief before airlifting him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge in a very serious but stable condition.

The patient and medical team were flown by the Magpas helicopter crew, made up of chief pilot Richard Eastwood and crew member George Phillips.

The ambulance service, fire service and police also attended.

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.
