Local Resident Warned To Stay Inside Due To Crossbow Threat

Simon Powler, aged 49 and residing close to the location in Bushey, recounted being instructed to seek shelter indoors due to reports of a potential threat from a man armed with a crossbow.

When asked about his thoughts on the matter, he replied, "I am a practical person who understands the reality of what happens in private."

It is surprising, but I take pride in the fact that we are within walking distance to Watford and near London. Despite the eerie and unfortunate events, we are fortunate to reside in a pleasant neighborhood.

I am not sure what caused that person to reach their breaking point.
