Perhaps flying that far south made them ill.

Are they the same species?
There are 250+ species of bees, some speak with a Scottish accent too.

The Cambridge bees look like honey bees too!

Was it a buzziness news story elegran ?

Did they escape from their kidnappers, sting them well, and set off south to set up a new home somewhere well away?

lemongrove Fri 21-Sep-18 20:28:28

Or is the whole thing a sting?

Stand underneath with your mouth open lemongrove !

They can't be the same bees - not enough time to make all that honey.
The NHS could make a fortune - or use it for wound dressing.

I love honey I must say.?it’s fab on pancakes.

Jalima Was that why they were stolen? Someone was planning to set up a lucrative honey-dressings enterprise (not NHS) but were foiled by the crafty bees, acting as one unit, who stuck the thieves to each other with honey and buzzed off to Cambridge.
