Beekeepers swarm to Parliament

Friday 26 April 2013

Beekeepers and their supporters swarmed to Parliament Square today urging the government to support an EU-wide ban on certain pesticides.

Campaigners in bee costumers joined keepers donned in their protective gear.

The demonstration came ahead of a vote in Brussels on Monday which will decide whether Europe introduces a two-year moratorium on various neonicotinoid pesticides.

Buglife chief executive Matt Shardlow said 73 per cent of the public supported a ban on the insecticides and the government should follow suit.
