Liam Gallagher has lent his support to the campaign to save Britain's honeybees.

The Oasis rocker teamed up with a man in a giant bee outfit to promote the film Vanishing of the Bees which highlights the effect pesticides are having on the dwindling bee collection.

Speaking to The Sun, Liam said: "You've got to look after the birds and the bees, man.

"The bees are vanishing. We've got to save them before they all buzz off. It's important. It's a really worthwhile cause.

"Without them we're in proper bother.  I like honey. If it weren't for honey, I'd have a rough voice."

Erm, haven't you got a rough voice already Liam?

A spokesman for the Co-op, the company backing the film, said: "We're thrilled Liam recognises the urgency for action."
