Disease free bees aim to please 

A Manx bee expert says the hot dry weather at the start of the summer has produced the best season for honey he has seen in fifty years.

Manx Government Bee Advisor, Harry Owens, has hives in St Johns.

He says the conditions earlier in the year gave the Manx insects, which are disease free, the chance to flourish.
