COMMENT - A web of intrigue

EVERYBODY likes getting worked up over tales of rogue animals on the loose.

This time it is biting spiders and while there are certainly some in circulation in the UK the chances of seeing one in hour house is minimal according to experts.

More importantly, while they do have a very painful and toxic bite they are very unlikely to bite and will avoid humans so the risk of a being bitten is extremely slim.

If you do see one take the advice of experts and fill up any holes with foam to put them off.
