Dr Patrick Pollock, an equine surgeon said these findings could be a great blessing for treating humans and animals.

"If we were able to use locally-sourced, cheaper honey as a wound dressing, it would be very beneficial particularly in poorer countries," said Dr Pollock.

Dr Pollock said: "Honey is useful in equine medicine, particularly on wounds to legs. There is not much fat on the lower half of horses' legs so can take a long time to heal, or even never fully heal at all."

In cases of injury, anti-bacterial honey is a blessing as it improves healing, cleans the wound and keeps it infection free.
