ELDERLY people relying on Meals on Wheels will be tucking into their hot food today (Tuesday) as services resumed after being suspended in many areas of the St Albans district yesterday (Monday).

Elderly and vulnerable people in St Albans and Bricket Wood went without, but the London Colney Meals on Wheels service battled the extreme weather conditions to provide hot meals to the 14 elderly they serve

Ian Woods, a trustee of Age Concern which provides meals to more than 100 elderly people in St Albans each day, confirmed services have resumed.
