    They've been in our country since 1879. You've prob crossed one before and not even give it a second thought. And now all cos some divs in the media are over hyping it everyone is bricking it!! They are no bigger than your thumbnail and there are more step ladder related deaths. And that's because no one has ever died from a spider bite in the uk. That bloke with the massive cut down his leg was only because he didn't clean the wound and contracted MRSA. You've got nothing to worry about mate!

    Lol ya see it all depends where ya read it. Newspaper I read it said it swelled straight up and he had to go straight to hospital. Since reading though I have learned they're pretty common.
