Bees swarm on plane plus more travel news

A Delta airlines flight has had a delayed take-off from Pittsburgh, USA, because a swarm of honeybees took up residence on the wing while it was refuelling.

Because the insects are a protected species, a beekeeper had to be called in to remove around 30,000 of them.

Also in the news this week, tourists in Mexico have had their travels disrupted by Hurricane Ernesto and snow has been falling in South Africa for the first time in six years.
