Pesticide ban urged to save Britain's bees

As honey bees suffer sharp population declines, parliamentary panel wants dangerous chemicals outlawed.

    A UK parliamentary panel has told the government to stop using pesticides.

    The Commons Environmental Audit Committee says that the bee population in the UK is rapidly falling as a result of the dangerous chemicals. Up to two-thirds of honey bees have suffered population declines.

    The dramatic fall in the bee population could have far-reaching consequences.
