Monster wasps' nest found in attic

The current heatwave has led to what experts believe could be the biggest wasps' nest in the country being found in the attic of a family home.

The nest, which measured 4ft 8ins by 4ft 6ins, was found in the loft of a house in Lawley Gate, Horsehay, near Telford, Shropshire. A spokesman for the Guinness Book of Records said there was no entry for the largest wasps' nest in the current edition and added: "We would need to do some research before we could confirm whether or not it is the biggest one."
