British tourist stung 500 times as bees invade French art gallery

The attack took place next to the converted pigeon loft of the Ardennes Chateau in Moulidars, near Cognac, in the western Charente region.

In what witnesses described as a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock horror film, thousands of the potentially lethal bees descended on a dozen victims.

The worst injured was an English woman in her 20s who sustained at least 500 stings all over her body.

She was in such a state of panic that she had to be sedated as emergency workers tried to remove the bees from her face and hair.
