Bee or Wasp

Found in dustbin used to mulch paper there were maybe 10 of them, would love to know what it is!

Thanks to everyone I agree it certainly looks like the hover fly. I keep bees and it was larger than my honey bees and about the same size as the bumble. They were pretty placid! I never realised that hover flies could be so big.
