Dear Editor,

Re: Dangerous Asian giant hornet looks set to cross English Channel to Kent
I first saw the large wasp type insect in the garden after watering my plants in June 2010.

It was at least two inches long and seemed to have a face.

The next day I saw it drinking from the bird bath. It makes quite a noise when it flies and I really do not want to see it again!

We live in North Hertfordshire and a friend also says she saw something very similar.


I will try to photograph it if it comes back.
