If you're feeling a little restless in the heat, spare a thought for the region's bees.

Juliet Fleming from Bristol has sent us this clip of bees swarming in the hot weather. They gathered in the front garden of a house on Hawthorn St, near Hillcrest Primary School in Totterdown earlier this week.

Experts say it is natural for bees to swarm in hot weather.

A bee specialist has collected the majority of the insects, and will return to collect the stragglers, who are likely to die without their colony.
