This is the moment a female shopper found herself swarmed by thousands of bees after unwittingly disturbing them outside a shop in central London.
These bees not only caused the closure of the shop but a large section of the pavement as well after the queen bee settled on the window.
Luckily for all involved, a trained bee keeper happened to be walking past at the time.
Tony Mann, a project manager for John Lewis, was walking down the street and took charge of leading people to safety so the bees could be moved to a new home.
‘We are going to smoke them into a box and encourage them to stay there and we will remove them later today,’ he told passers-by.

Mr Mann identified the flying insects as European Honeybees who had followed their queen to the seemingly irregular spot.

This is not the first hive this spring to choose an odd place to make a home.
George Neal, a 21-year-old student, found 20,000 bees swarming around his Nissan Micra after the queen had made her home in one of the car’s wheel arch.
