A young woman was robbed in St Albans last week by a group of men wearing black bandanas.

She was walking along the Alban Way between Hill End Lane and Morrisons on Hatfield Road when she was approached by three men.

One was described as black, aged between 20 and 25, and wearing a white jumper, black tracksuit bottoms and black bandana over his mouth.

The other two were white, wearing black clothing and a black bandana. One was described as aged between 20 and 25.

They took cash from her and threatened her before making off in the direction of Morrisons.

Det Sgt Adrian Lysak said: “I would like to reassure the community that we are doing all that we can to locate these offenders. If you have any information that can assist with our investigation, please contact me via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference F3/17/2396.”

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.
