A smashed up bee hive was found dumped on an estate this afternoon.

The demolished hive filled with honeycomb, dead bees and larvae was discovered on the Carters Estate in Raynes Park at about 1pm this afternoon.

Kevin Whincup, who first noticed the stash, said: "It's really odd because I have never come across anything like that.

"I found it all dumped. It looks like someone actually raided the bee hive and broke it all up and just damaged it.

"I'm not a fan of bees but we have got a decline in the bee population and it's going to have a bad effect on all bees."

The hive was found at the end of Bodnant Gardens, next to the bollards by the Network Rail tracks.
