Spider terrorises motorists on the M3 (ROMANSE at Hampshire County Council)

Motorists had a truly terrifying commute today when a giant spider decided to patrol the M3 in Hampshire.

The huge arachnid was spotted by a traffic camera crawling across the motorway at junction 6 near Basingstoke.

The CCTV image shows two cars on the opposite side of the road speeding away from the enormous insect.

Thankfully on closer inspection the nightmare-inducing picture proved to be a trick of the eye.

It seems a small common spider made himself comfortable on the lense of the camera. Nevertheless it sure is a web-friendly picture! Sorry.
