Bee orchids are enjoying a revival in northern England due to climate change, scientists say.

A study by York University’s biology department found that the orchid – which grows up to 12 inches tall and whose distinctive pattern mimics that of a female bee – has been spotted at a wider variety of sites than usual. 

The plant, which loves warm conditions, is found across the country but is traditionally scarcer in the North.
