Kids flee giant spider


A GIANT spider shut down a school yesterday.

The speckled brown exotic creature — as big as a man’s palm — crawled from a set of drums brought in from Senegal for a music workshop.

The spider legged it as a teacher tried to trap it in a container.

About 350 pupils were sent home as a precaution at Whitelands Park Primary School, in Thatcham, Berks.

Experts at London Zoo said it was probably a tropical house spider — which can cause a “nasty reaction” with its bite.

The school was being fumigated and was due to re-open today.
