An eight-legged beast - reported to be Britain's biggest spider - has been found in a back garden in Kent
Whitstable DJ Matthew Field was astonished to see the spider.
Wildlife experts have identified it as a Segestria Florentina - also known as the tube web spider. It preys on the feared False Widow and is the largest species found in the UK - up to five inches in diameter.
"It startled me," Mr Field said. "It definitely wasn't happy to be disturbed."
The spiders are not considered dangerous - although they can bite.
You may have enjoyed the summer - the weather on the whole, was great - but, like many good things, there's a trade-off. Spiders! Yes, it means our eight-legged friends have had plenty of insects to eat - and now, they're heading indoors to mate. Experts say we should prepare for a spider invasion. Sally Simmonds reports.
In case you missed it yesterday, here's a repeat of that photo that thrilled many - and sent others scurrying under their beds!
This "giant spider" was seen on the M3 motorway in Hampshire. Thankfully though it's not really an enormous arachnid just a trick of the eye as the normal sized creepy crawled onto the lens of a travel camera.
We think it deserves to be a huge web hit!
AAAAAGH.....look away now if you don't like spiders. Seriously, they are helping with a breakthrough in medical science. Sally Simmonds reports,
