A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of interfering with motor vehicles in St Albans.

Kane Dixon, of Russet Drive, was stopped on Elm Avenue by officers at 2am yesterday.

Subsequently, he was charged with interfering with three motor vehicles on Tuesday, May 15 and a similar offence in Rodney Avenue at 1.20am on April 30.

He appeared in Hatfield court yesterday and has been bailed until Monday June 18.

Det Insp Alex Warwick said: “We have had dozens of thefts from motor vehicles reported to us over the past few months.

“The best way to significantly reduce this is to make sure you lock your car, double-check you have locked it and do not leave anything on display, including loose change.

“Please call us on 999 if you see anyone acting suspiciously around vehicles, or 101 if you are reporting it retrospectively.”

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.
