Tens of thousands of bees removed from house

About 20,000 bees have been removed from a house in Coventry and rehomed with a beekeeper in Lichfield.

It took six hours for David Bird from Delta Pest Control to remove the colony, which had grown to 1.2 cubic metres in size.

It is thought the bees were able to thrive in a cavity due to the mild winter.

After a period of quarantine the bees will be put to work in an apiary.
