A woman was seriously injured after a car crashed into a tree in St Albans yesterday.

At about 10.40am, the East of England Ambulance Service, the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance , Herts police, and Herts Fire and Rescue Service rushed to reports of a collision on Toulmin Drive.

It was reported that seven people were inside the three-door blue Vauxhall Corsa when it smashed into a tree - leaving the bonnet crumbled and some of the people involved with life changing injuries.

Two people were transferred to Watford General Hospital by land ambulance and a woman, thought to have a pelvic injury, was airlifted to Royal London Hospital.

Firefighters assisted in removing one person from the destroyed car.

Beds, Cambs and Herts Roads Policing Unit said the driver had only passed her test last week.

Herts police closed the street at the junction with Lawrence Road while emergency services dealt with the incident.

Anyone who witnessed the collision should call Herts police on 101.

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.
