A HAWK-eyed neighbour helped police trace ram raiders who smashed their truck through the glass frontage of the Co-Operative store in Redbourn's High Street.

It was around 4.20am today that the neighbour heard the alarm and the sound of breaking glass.

He alerted the police who arrived there in a matter of minutes and gave chase to the ram raiders along the M1.

Two men in their early twenties from North London were captured and are currently in custody being interviewed by police.

It is believed the men made off without managing to take anything from the store.

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.
