A vehicle’s roof had to be removed to help two people escape after a crash on the M1 junction 7 for St Albans and Hatfield.

St Albans firefighters received a call at around 7.45pm on Saturday to attend a road traffic collision on the M1 southbound, just before it joins the M25.

The crew helped assist Hemel Hempstead firefighters by using Lukas cutting equipment to remove the roof.

A spokesman for the St Albans fire service said: “We took the two casualties out on spine boards.

“Both were taken to hospital.

“We were on the scene for about an hour.”

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.

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.
