Buzz Off!!

Thieves create buzz by stealing beehive

There's beehive bedlam in Norfolk after a hive containing thousands of bees hibernating over the winter was stolen, according to the Daily Mirror.

Hives are typically home to between 20,000 and 60,000 of the insects, which can live in vast colonies, but would have been none the wiser that they have now become part of a potential sting operation.

The hive was taken from a community garden in Norwich, between December 13 and 22, say Norfolk police.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "It would have taken two people to move the structure.

"Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the whereabouts of the stolen hive."
