A large swarm of insects has appeared on a Welwyn Garden City residential road.

Reader Stephany Chapman sent the Welwyn Hatfield Times a film of the swarm, apparently honeybees, in Bridge Road East.

Knebworth beekeeper Lieva Nation told the Welwyn Hatfield Times she was unable to attend, but would arrange for help from a fellow enthusiast.

She advised readers who find honeybee swarms to contact local beekeepers through welwynbbka.org
