A beekeeper from St Albans was called out to encourage some angry apis to buzz off.
Adrian Small, 49, of Gurney Court Road. saved the city from a swarm of bees last Friday evening, after giving out his number as a contact to deal with this sort of emergency.
A member of the public got in touch with Adrian after he had seen thousands of bees buzzing around the flower barrel outside Café Rouge on Holywell Hill.
Beekeeper Adrian commandeered a friend’s vehicle and rushed to the scene.
He took his mobile hive and used a smoking implement to gently encourage the bees inside and then took them to a place of safety where they could be released.
