An instructor at Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose was confronted by swarming bees when he arrived at work.

Air Engineer Petty Officer Si Baker, who is responsible for the station's Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) defence cell, had to call for help from a local bee keeper when he found the swarm outside his office window.

Fortunately he had full protective kit which he needs for his day job.

Les Tonkin from the West Cornwall Bee Keepers Association took them away to - hopefully - start a new colony.
