THIEVES smashed their way into a shop in St Albans causing damage estimated at £1,500 and making off with a trolley-load of cigarettes and alcohol. They shattered the front doors of Tesco Metro in St Brelades Place, Jersey Farm, just before midnight on Tuesday, smashed open cabinets and scattered stock all over the shop. It is thought that the raiders parked in the store's car park and two of them then got out and broke into the shop. They filled a trolley with the cigarettes and alcohol and wheeled it to the waiting car. The police have five people in custody in connection with the burglary.

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.
