Giant wasp nest discovered in bedroom

29 August 2014 Last updated at 08:30 BST

A giant wasp nest almost a metre wide has been removed from a bedroom in Winchester.

It was found by a woman in a spare room at her house in St Cross.

She had left a window open and the wasps chewed through the pillows and the mattress to make the nest.

A pest controller was called in to get rid of it.

The nest contained 5,000 wasps and could have taken three months to build.
