This was buzzing around our house last autumn. WE live in north Shropshire, very close to an ancient wood. It was slightly bigger than a normal hornet, but!!! the main difference is that it's head was bright RED!!! We do have hornets here, and this did not look like a regular hornet. So is it some kind of wood wasp? Help - please. I've lived in and around the country and have never seen a wasp or hornet lkie this.
