Like a semi-detached house this ornate wasp nest was discovered in a loft fused to an old nest.

The pests had set up shop in a loft in Basingstoke, terrifying a wasp-phobic woman who lives there.

Pest controllers were called in to tackle the huge wasps' lair, which has fused with a dead nest and grown to the size of a beach ball.

Shane Jones from RIDTEK pest controllers in Basingstoke was summoned to deal with the nest and said he had "never seen anything like it before".
