Shocking video footage has captured the moment hundreds of bees swarmed a car in Cornwall.

Hundreds of the flying insects made a bee-line for the Honda while it was parked outside the Asda superstore in Hayle on Monday (May 20) morning.

Video footage, filmed by passer-by Jason Robbins, shows the bees swirling around the car before eventually settling on it.

Despite being slightly panicked by the sight, Jason said no one was stung by the bees.

Took a moment to realise what was happening and definitely felt a slight panic, they seemed pretty friendly though, no one was stung during their arrival.

Not what you want to find when you come back to your car, but I guess it could be expected on World Bee Day.

Fortunately for Jason and others in the car park, a local bee keeper - who was shopping in the supermarket at the time - intervened by transporting the bees in boxes to a local hive.
