Lovely hot afternoon, balcony

Lovely hot afternoon, balcony doors open and at 3pm in flew what I thought was the biggest wasp I'd ever seen!
After a thorough search on the internet I've come to realise it was a European Hornet...still scared the pants off of me..
Took a quick video of it and got a wee bit closer than either of us liked and it reared up at me,so I let it be for a few minutes,then ushered it back outside..

Picture or description

I think we need a picture or a description before we can agree with the identification.
