Mass bee invasion closes school .
A school has been forced to close after being infested by a swarm of bees. Almost 300 pupils of Larkman Primary School in Norwich were sent home after thousands of the insects buzzed into the music department.
A spokeswoman for Norfolk County Council said no pupils had been stung and that pest controllers had sprayed a chemical to destroy the bees. "The bees were found in a wall cavity of the school by pest control officers," the spokeswoman said.
"Pest control officers sprayed a chemical into the wall cavity. All of the bees will have died unfortunately."
