An elderly couple from Nottinghamshire have described the moment they were bit by what experts are calling ‘a cousin’ of Britain’s most venomous spider, the false widow.
Eddie and Bernice Kozlowski are now recovering from the bites. They caught the spider in their home in Gedling on Sunday.
It has been sent to Nottingham Trent University for analysis by experts.
Earlier this month, a mother in Northampton escaped harm after she found a flesh-eating spider in her bed.
