Asian hornet alert as sighting confirmed in the UK

Just when you think the UK has had enough chaos to last a lifetime, the return of Asian hornets proves there's still plenty more to come.

There really seems to be an unnecessary amount of animals that not only sting, but have the ability to fly around in order to find their target. I know that everything contributes to the ecosystem and the circle of life and whatnot, but do they really need to hurt?

As if wasps and the usual hornets we have zipping about weren't enough, the National Bee Unit confirmed today (28 September) that there's a new critter in town, and they could pose a serious threat to honey bees.

An Asian hornet nest, the size of an "elongated basketball", has been removed from a back garden after a week-long search operation.

Beekeepers were warned to be vigilant last week after three of the insects were spotted in Rayleigh.

Inspectors from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) found the nest six metres up a tree, after knocking on a resident's door in the Essex town.

The destroyed nest has been taken to a government laboratory for testing.
