I think this is the most accurate news article I've read about Asian hornet. They even got the the right Image if one

It would appear an Asian hornet has been spotted again in the new forest area. However can't find anything on NBU site so it may or may not be correct

The Tamworth hornet sighting is now on the BBKA website map. jersey is covered with markers, so the hornet must now be considered to definitely have arrived for good. (Well, bad).
