A hive of bee-killing Asian hornets has been destroyed after scientists electronically tagged one of the insects to discover the nest's location.

The radio tag was attached to a hornet feeding on fallen apples near Brockenhurst, Hampshire, in September.

It led researchers to a woodland nest, which was later eradicated.

The University of Exeter said it was the first time the technique had been used to kill hornets on UK mainland.
