A motorbike was deliberately set alight in a St Albans park this morning (April 11).

One fire crew from Watford rushed to the off road play park in Radlett Road, Frogmore, at about 5.05am to extinguish the fire.

The blaze was out by 5.30am, using back pack sprayers because they could not get the fire engine into the park.

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.
