Two missing people who were believed to have been in London Colney were tragically found dead at the weekend.

Charlie Eccleston, 19, and Zaiga Gravenieks, 20, were last seen in Shenley on Tuesday October 31 - Herts police became worried for their welfare and appealed for their whereabouts on Saturday.

But on Sunday afternoon officers revealed the couple had been found dead earlier that morning.

Their families have been informed of the news and thanked everyone involved in the search. They are now being supported by specially-trained officers and have asked for privacy to mourn.

Charlie and Zaiga had links to St Albans and Borehamwood.

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.
