MASKED raiders wielding metal bars and dressed in white boiler suits threatened staff at Redbourn post office and smashed one of the security doors. The three robbers burst into the post office in the High Street at 5.15pm on Monday wearing what looked like disposable all-in-one suits and demanded money. The gang, who had their faces covered and were wearing gloves, threatened staff and smashed a hole in one of the security doors. They ran out of the shop after stealing some cash and drove off in a red Ford Sierra which had been waiting outside. The car was later found abandoned in Dunstable Road. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the police on 01707 638235 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

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.
