A man was hospitalised with head injuries after a crash in Flamstead this morning (Tuesday).

The man, in his 40s, was thought to be driving an Audi A3 at about 9.30 when it collided with a Ford Fusion at the roundabout on Watery Lane.

Police closed the road at the M1 end and at the junction with Annables Lanes and Herts county council contractors Ringway were called to clear an oil spillage.

The man was taken to Luton and Dunstable Hospital and is thought to be in a stable condition.

Both vehicles were recovered.

A spokeswoman for Ringway said: “The spill was cleared up and the road was re-opened at about 2pm. The traffic in the area is currently flowing freely.”

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.
