[h=3]Good to bee back: 'Extinct' British breed of honeybee found alive and well in church rafters after nearly 80 years[/h]
A rare 'black' honeybee which was thought to have been wiped out by a strain of Spanish flu in 1919 has been rediscovered in the rafters of a church in Northumberland.


The rare 'British Black' is much darker than other bees, and developed in Britain after the last ice age.


The bees that populate Britain today were mostly introduced from abroad - including the popular honeybee.
