Police have used crime scene cordon tape to prevent people walking too close to the swarm of potentially hundreds of thousands of bees.

The police sting operation took place in Chichester on Monday when the bees – on their way to make a new hive – settled on a tree branch in the centre of the city.

A beekeeper was called, who placed a hive basket on the ground, and the area was cordoned off until all the bees had settled in their enticing new home – which was then safely taken away from the area.
