Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a theft of a bee hive with a colony of bees which occurred in Beeston.
The hive, which is similar to the one pictured, is 18 inches squared and was situated in land adjacent to the Beeston Garden Centre and Farm Shop, North Walsham Road, Beeston.
The hive is worth £200 and was last seen by the owner in January and discovered stolen yesterday (April 12). A red vehicle, possibly a van, is believed to be involved in the theft.
The owner estimates that around 2,000 bees would have been in the colony at the time, given the time of year.
If you are a witness to the theft or saw anything suspicious in the area please call Norfolk Police on 101 quoting crime reference 36/30652/17.
