A Cardiff park is now home to beehives more than sixty years since honey was produced there - and now it's available to buy.

It is seen as step towards protecting and conserving the bee population which is currently in decline.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Councillor Peter Bradbury, says it's a new resource for 'public engagement and education.'

"Bute Park's 56 hectares are home to a vast array of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees, so it's a great place to make honey.
