Tenterden woman allergic to bees scared to leave her home since a swarm descended on her garden

A Tenterden woman has said she is too scared to leave her home since a swarm of bees descended on her garden earlier today.

Laura Anstiss, who is allergic to the insects, said a swarm of thousands paid a visit to her garden around midday and are still in her garden.

Laura, a garden designer and owner of Anstiss Landscape Design, said it was 'incredible' to watch the swarm arrive in Homewood Road but admitted she is now a bit worried.

She said: "It was amazing to watch, the whole sky went absolutely black and the sound was amazing. It was so loud.

"But I am very allergic to them so I legged it in the other direction and now I'm a bit scared to leave the house! 

"It was incredible, I have not seen anything like it before, certainly nothing that big.

"They are still in our hedge, the whole thing looks alive right now. They almost seem confused.

"I'm not sure what to do now, bees are special and I don't want to disturb them.

"But it's going to be a hard job to retrieve them because they are all in the thick of the hedge."
