Barack Obama had to calm down a group of screaming children after bees interrupted his annual reading session at the White House.

The US president was reading from his favourite childhood book, Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are, as part of the annual Easter Egg Roll activities.

"Oh no, it's a bee," Mr Obama said when the insects began to buzz around the children. He added: "Bees are good. They won't land on you. They won't sting you. They'll be okay."

He then continued with the reading as the children finally quieted down.
