Justice of the Peace Evelyn Forrest:

"Their garden is part of their house, and with evidence an allergy may be building up to bee stings this could be a very serious matter for the health of your neighbours."

Lets hope she did not suffer a paper cut while reading the reports,paper can kill you if a cut gets infected.

He did beekeepers a great disservice with such a stupid attitude. What an arrogant pillock! If he was any good as a beekeeper he should have recognised a problem colony and requeened.

Hope he got 'happy returns' from them on his inspections- I say this peering through a closed eye from one lot of arsey bees on a short life lease :mad::smash:

It's just a sensational media headline. For all we know the man may have been unfairly treated because of idiotic neighbours who can't tell a bee from a horsefly. The opposite might also be true, but don't rely on the media, not even the BBC, to paint a balanced picture.

Prepare yourselves for lots of similar headlines next year as people discover just how easy it is to keep bees in an urban environment. Times are coming for a charm offensive to ensure the public that most beekeepers dont need to be burnt at the stake.
