The Met’s elite gun cops to start beekeeping

It’s less fuzz and more buzz in this special new sting operation.
The Met police are going to be looking after bees.
It is in an attempt to keep the officers calm and collected, as apparently this ‘relaxing and rewarding hobby’ can keep the stress at bay.
Scotland Yards C018 firearms unit have been given a grant for £535 that will go towards two hives and protective suits, as part of the Met’s Beekeeping Association.
A source at the police told the Sunday People:
“The force has officers and staff who deal with some of the most high-profile situations in British law enforcement, so it’s good to offer as many ways as possible for them to take some downtime.”
