A man is in hospital after brawling with staff inside Wagamama’s in St Albans.

Eight police officers were called at 8.18pm on Saturday, August 5 to the Christopher Place restaurant.

This followed reports of a fight between a man and three others inside the popular eatery.

Despite rumours on social media, police say no weapons were used.

They refused to confirm or deny the man worked at Wagamama’s.

He was detained by police, and it became apparent he had suffered a medical episode.

The ambulance service were called at 8.39pm, having been told the man was unconscious.

An air ambulance landed at Westminster Lodge and the crew travelled to Christopher Place.

They were joined by a land ambulance crew, rapid response team, and fire and rescue.

The land ambulance took him to hospital, where he remains in a stable condition.

No arrests have been made.

Wagamama’s have said four members of staff were injured, and have now been discharged from hospital.

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.
