Staff at a Royal Navy airbase are being forced to wear gloves - after an invasion of poisonous SPIDERS. Hundreds of noble false widow spiders - about the size of a 50p piece - have been spotted at Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose Culdrose in Cornwall.
Workers at one factory on the site are now wearing latex gloves to stop them getting bitten by the arachnids - which have bee-like stings.
A Lieutenant from RNAS Culdrose has been selected to take part in more than 800 victory ceremonies at this summer's Olympic Games. Alexandra Kelley will raise the national flags of medal winners duing the anthems.
