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.
