A plastic bag is causing delays between St Albans City and West Hampstead Thameslink.

The bag has been caught in the overhead power lines and has caused one of the southbound lines to be shut and delays of up to ten minutes.

Trains which usually call at platform three at Radlett, Elstree & Borehamwood, Mill Hill Broadway, Hendon, Cricklewood, may now arrive and depart from platform one.

The disruption is expected to last until 5.30pm.

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.
