A man from east London has reportedly been attacked by a venomous spider, known as a 'false widow'. Ricki Whitmore claims the creature bit him, causing his leg to swell. He ended up in hospital on an antibiotic drip. Speaking to the Daily Star he said:
I found a nest of spiders' in a school I was renovating. They were quite big, a purplish brown colour with strange markings on their back.
I'd never seen anything like it. It was quite creepy. I'd never kill a spider but I needed access to the corner so I just swept them away.
