'Sniffer bees' used to detect bombs

The 'sniffer bees'

We know that sniffer dogs are used to check airport baggage for explosives, but soon there could be a new weapon in the fight against terrorism... sniffer bees!

Inscentinel, a company based in Harpenden in Hertfordshire, is developing a hand held device which has bees inside it.

It uses their incredible sense of smell to detect explosives and could one day be used in airports.
