THERE were fears the venemous false widow had spread north of the border today after a patterned spider was spotted in Perth.

The creature was photographed by Danielle Davidson at the weekend and posted on Facebook.

Terrified Danielle said a spider fell onto her neck as she took rubbish to her wheelie bin.

She wrote: “I am never touching my wheelie bin EVER AGAIN!!!!

“Went out to the garden to put a bag in the bin, I had to move the bin slightly to get to it just as something fell out the bag, so I bent down to pick it up to then feel something on my neck.

“Automatically I wiped it with my hand.. TO THEN FEEL IT MOVE! I swiped it again and this THING fell to the floor! I think the whole of perth never mind western edge heard me scream!!!

“Honestly can still feel my heart pounding out my chest.... Eeeeeek!” Luckily on this occasion it proved to be a case of mistaken identity
