A moped was deliberately set alight in St Albans last night (May 25).

Firefighters from St Albans were called to the playing field in Park View at about 11.15pm to deal with the blaze, which at that time had been alight for about five minutes.

Although it only took a further five minutes and one hosereel to extinguish the flames, only the frame of the bike was left standing.

The moped is believed to have been stolen.

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.
