Try not to panic, (because, actually, it’s really not a big deal) but we thought we should tell you that last night a truly terrifying swarm of (completely harmless) bees descended upon Greenwich (and nobody was injured).
But it was scary looking stuff. Just have a watch of this video that looks like it’s been taken straight out of a low-budget horror film:

No one at the scene was stung, due to the lethargic nature of the bees when swarming. Before taking off in their swarm, the bees all fill up with as much honey as they can eat, making positioning themselves to attack very difficult. It might sound un-bee-lievable, but swarming is a completely normal process in the life cycle of the honey bee and apparently not something to be afraid of.
