Bee, Wasp or Hornet?

Can anyone identify this please - it moved so fast that I had to slow the video right down to see it - you probably can't tell but it was reallly very big (unforturnately I don't have David Attenborough's camera crew!) and I didn't want to get too close! Surrey UK

    Well done for having a go with the video.

    It is a bit of a challenge to see, but I am fairly sure it is a European hornet, Vespa crabro.

    (I'm looking at its brown front, black middle, yellow back-end; and correct size.)
