There is train disruption this morning.


Trains were delayed and cancelled from St Albans this morning after police conducted a search of the carriages at rush hour.

Officers boarded and held a train after British Transport Police received a call at about 6.55am from a member of the public.

It is unclear what the tip was about or if the search was successful.

As some lines were blocked two trains cancelled and one was delayed by 40 minutes.

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.
