A wry view of life for the world-weary

Murder Of The Week


The rural calm that is to be found in Sandon in Hertfordshire has been shattered, I learned this week, by a murder most fowl.

A gander, which had been adopted as a symbol of the village and taken up residence in a disused telephone box for close on a decade, was shot dead whilst bobbing along on the pond on Sunday afternoon. He was killed by a shot, probably from an air rifle, which penetrated his skull close to his left eye.

The gander, known to the locals as Goose, was buried near the pond and, as is the modern way, flowers and cards from well-wishers have been left in the phone box.

The hunt is on for the killer.

And by way of an update of last week’s Court Cases Of The Week the Sledden brothers had their sentence changed to two years in chokey.
