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.
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.
