A GIANT wasp nest has been found in an abandoned house in Spain.
The 22ft nest was discovered by police who were contacted by worried neighbours in San Sebastien de la Gomera in the Canary Islands.
Experts say the nest must have been made by an invasive species of wasp which had migrated from Africa as the native variety would not build one so large.
The Canary Islands are just 100km from Morocco by water.
The home was cordoned off as police try to locate the owners of the property.
