Police in San Sebastián de la Gomera in the Canary Islands have cordoned off an abandoned house after finding a seven-metre-long wasp nest.

Enormous wasp nest found in abandoned house (VIDEO)
<p>Officers were called out by worried <strong>neighbours</strong> of the empty home in the island's capital and say the nest was in an indoor hallway and contained literally millions of wasps.<br />Experts have examined the nest, which is said to be <strong>21'9” in length</strong>, and say the common type of wasp found in gardens would never normally build a nest of this size. They believe it must be an invasive species of wasp which had migrated from <strong>Africa</strong>. The Canary Islands are less than 100 kilometres from Morocco by water. Authorities have been unable to trace the owner of the house.</p><p><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="playwire_player_229544" name="playwire_player_229544" height="440" width="600"><param name="movie" value="" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="flashvars" value="configuration=" /><embed id="playwire_player_229544" name="playwire_player_229544" src="" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="configuration=" height="440" width="600" /> </object></p>
