A buzzing hive of honey bees has been safely removed from a hedge of the car park at Maidenhead Town Hall.
Jason Mills, the borough ranger at Braywick Nature Centre, was alerted to the hive on Wednesday, July 30 and recruited the skills of bee expert Anton Coric to safely remove the swarm.
Decked out in his protective gear, Anton put part of the hive in a cardboard box and waited an hour for the colony of about 10,000 bees to relocated into their make-shift home.
The hive has been taken to a private open space in Cookham before it will be permanently re-homed.
