Bees removed after swarming on parked cars

A beekeeper has told how he managed to remove a swarm of bees that landed on a street of parked cars in a city centre.

Adrian Kennedy, from the British Beekeepers' Association, said he tempted the bees away from the vehicles, which were parked outside Nottingham railway station, by luring them into a wax-lined box and took them to a place of safety.

He said the impulse for bees to swarm at this time of year was "very great" and the insects were often attracted to smooth, shiny surfaces.
