'Giant' spider spotted on M3

Are we actually going to write this? Oh god, we are.

A giant spider has been spotted on a British motorway! But rest at ease as thankfully the huge arachnid, that appeared to bestride Junction 6 of the M3 in Hampshire, is actually a trick of perspective.

The creepy crawly was spotted by keen-eyed road management officials as it scuttled over one of their CCTV cameras. Staff at the ROMANSE (ROad MANagement System for Europe) centre posted the picture on Twitter with the comment "Apart from a giant spider terrorising motorists passing by #M3 J6, #Hampshire's roads are now quiet & incident free."
