Police watch on as hundreds of bees swarm a pavement in Edgware, London

Metropolitan Police watch on from the safety of their car as a swarm of bees land in the middle of the pavement in Edgware, London.

Hundreds of bees are seen crawling around on the coned off pavement as the police peer through their car windows.

Paddy, who filmed this bizarre video yesterday (May 7), told Newsflare: "I remember thinking that the current situation with the collapse of beehives must be really bad if the police are out protecting them.

"As far as I know, the bees were just on the pavement. The police were not doing much at all, just sat there bemused."
