An Asian Hornet Team member in Essex has found three hornets in Rayleigh in Essex and they have been confirmed as Asian Hornets. This comes a month after a single confirmed hornet was found in Chelmsford in Essex. 

National Bee Unit Inspectors have been dispatched to the location to carry out further surveillance. 

The Asian Hornets were captured by the AHT team member and reported on the Asian Hornet Watch app. 

The app is free to download from both Apple and Android app stores.
