An Asian Hornet nest, about the size of a football, has been found in Guernsey.

It was discovered on private land in the Longfrie area, near to St Peter's Church and is said to be difficult to reach.

The States Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services say it 'will be treated and removed as soon as possible'. They hope it will be next week but that is not confirmed.

Islanders are once again being urged to report any potential sightings...

Please check your land and property including sheds and outhouses for nests. If a suspected hornet is sighted, the public should take a good quality close up photo if possible and email this to asianhornet@gov.gg.
