Thousands of bees caused a buzz when police were forced to temporarily close a city centre road.

A hive was found on a bollard on the junction of Northgate and Rishworth Street.

Officers closed Northgate for around 15 minutes while a bee keeper removed the swarm of bees.

The incident happened on Saturday evening.
