The search is on for the thieves responsible for stealing a van in St Albans earlier this week.

Herts Police are appealing for witnesses following the theft of a white Ford Transit Tipper from Ladies Grove.

It was taken between 7.30pm on Monday (2) and 6.15am Tuesday (3).

A police spokesman said that it was not clear how the vehicle was stolen.

Police would like to speak with anyone who saw anything suspicious or unusual in the area.

Also, between 3-9am today (Thursday) a rear window of a Seat parked in a driveway on Caledon Road in London Colney was smashed.

The police spokesman said: “There was hundreds of pounds of damage caused. But nothing was taken.”

Anyone with information on either incident should contact police on the non-emergency number 101, or 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.
