Bees latch onto old fence in Sandgate

A swarm of bees have been causing quite a buzz in a village High Street today.

With warmer temperatures in Kent, thousands of the insects latched onto an old fence in Sandgate, between Folkestone and Hythe.

The bees were discovered by Sandgate parish councillor Tim Prater who shared a picture of them on Twitter at around midday.

Mr Prater said: "Bee swarm decides a fence on Sandgate High Street is the perfect place to stay. Not convinced!

"Beekeeper is now on the way from Dover, great service."

He confirmed the fence does not belong to him.
