Masked robbers targeted a grocery shop in St Albans this weekend.

Two people wearing all black went to the Co-op in How Wood at about 6.30am on February 11 to intimidate staff and steal money.

The offenders, who were black and between 25 and 35, demanded cash from employees before leaving and making off in an unknown direction.

No-one was injured during the robbery but Herts police are appealing for information and witnesses.

Investigating Det Con Jody Perrin said: “Despite the time of day, we believe that there were several people in the area at the time of the robbery who may have information that could assist our investigation.

“If you have not already spoken to police and believe you have information that could assist the investigation please contact me by emailing jody.perrin@herts.pnn.police.uk.”

People can also call police on 101 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.
