A large swarm of bees have been filmed circling around the entrance of the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh.

A passerby recorded the unusual activity at the east end of Princes Street, which forced the hotel to call in experts to deal with the situation.

The Balmoral confirmed their entrance was inundated with the stinging insects, though they insist that everything is now under control.

It remains a mystery what caused the bees to congregate in the area in the first place.
