A car was swarmed by hundreds of bees at the Cowley Retail Park yesterday afternoon.

Far from being fazed by the buzzing insects, witnesses saw the driver get into his car and drive away as normal. He was later seen at the park’s Tesco petrol station trying to get rid of the bees first with a jet wash, then by driving through a car wash.

Witness Lorraine Wharton, from Barton, said: “I was shaking just looking at this cloud of bees. I can’t believe he just calmly got in with no problem. Everyone in the shops was talking about it.”
