Thieves steal bee hive

The bees push a ball towards a target, get rewarded, and can solve such a relatively complex problem “despite having brains the size of sesame seeds”. Which is where many of the modern players come in. (Stock Photo)

Thieves have stolen a hive containing thousands of sleeping bees.

The hive was stolen from a community garden in Marlpit Lane, Norwich, between December 13 and 22.

It contained bees hibernating for the winter. Hives are typically home to between 20,000 and 60,000 creatures.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "It would have taken two people to move the structure.

"Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning the whereabouts of the stolen hive."
