Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident in St Albans


Police are appealing for information after an elderly woman was robbed of her jewellery at a bus stop in St Albans recently.

The woman, in her 70s, was waiting at a bus stop in Folly Lane when she was approached by a man and two women.

The group removed her gold necklace and earrings before getting in a vehicle and driving off on Saturday, November 8 shortly before midday.

PC Matt Duric, who is investigating, said: “This is a disgraceful and unusual crime which targeted a vulnerable woman.

“The victim has been left extremely shaken by what has happened.

“I am appealing for anyone who was in the area around the time and saw what happened to contact me as soon as possible.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, either prior to or around the time of the incident.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact PC Duric on the non-emergency number 101.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

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.
