A huge wasp nest discovered by exterminator John Birkett at the unused spare bedroom of a house in Winchester. According to the Hampshire Chronicle:

“I opened the door and I just couldn’t bloody believe it,” Mr Birkett said. “It was the most incredible thing I’ve seen. “I got dressed up like a spaceman and tried to destroy as many as I could with the workers flying around the room.” The nest split in half during the struggle, releasing 2,000 wasps. “I was covered in them,” he said. “The room was completely full of wasps.”

    Looks like in the Sandman when Constantine’s ex-girlfriend is found to be addicted to sleep sand and her house has been taken over by horrible, horrible dreams. *shudder*
