April Fools: Exeter airline Flybe to transport bees around the country

Airline Flybe, based in Exeter, has got into the April Fools Day spirit.

In a quirky video they discuss a fictitious service that will be moving bees to parts of the country where they are lacking in number.

It's fair to say that we're glad this was a joke. It wouldn't be great to be sat next to buzzing bees on a 4 hour flight.

Watch the video below:

The family of a student found dead near Exeter have paid tribute to him. Rory Cattermole was said to have 'brought great happiness and joy". The 20 year-old disappeared after leaving a nightclub in Exeter city centre nearly a fortnight ago. Search teams found his body two days later at Longdown, almost four miles away.

Rory, from Cambridgeshire, was a first year business student at Exeter University. Police are not treating his death as suspicious.

“We are heartbroken at the loss of our dear son and brother, Rory. He brought great happiness and joy to our lives, and we now realise how much he touched the lives of many others too.

“We will miss him desperately, and are devastated that he will not be able to realise all his hopes and dreams.”
