A man has been charged for driving without due care and attention after seriously injuring a cyclist in St Albans.

Usmaan Mehmood, 29, of Argyll Avenue in Luton, was fined £500 after a Volkswagen Golf he was driving collided with a cyclist on the roundabout where the A405 North Orbital Road meets Tippendell Lane in Chiswell Green.

While joining the roundabout Mehmood failed to give way to the cyclist who was already cycling around it. He then crashed into the cyclist and caused serious injury.

After pleading not guilty, Mehmood changed his plea to guilty.

He was given seven points on his licence and, in addition to the £500 fine, was ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £50.

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.
