A colony of 60,000 bees has been carefully removed from a hospital in Cambridge.
Mental health teams at Fulbourn Hospital were shocked to find they had been working within just a few feet of the insects which were discovered under roof panels.
Workers had spotted a few bees going in and out of the roof space of the Beechcroft building.
Specialists from the Tree Bee Society took 12 hours to remove the colony, having found honey oozing from the brickwork and plaster.
The insects were not too keen on being moved on from the home they are thought to have lived in for several years.
Despite being dressed in special head-to-toe bee-keeping suits, the team of three was stung several times.
The bees were in a part of the hospital not open to patients.
The Tree Bee Society said it was confident the team had got all of them and they had been taken back to its base in Lancashire to live in a field.
