A resident from the town of Halifax has caught a gigantic spider and filmed it up close for everyone to see.

He claims to have caught the arachnid lurking in his house, and has uploaded a video to YouTube showing it alive and moving inside a glass jar.

He says it is biggest spider he has ‘ever seen’.

It resembles a house spider, which can be seen all year round often encountered trapped in the bath.

Male and female house spiders are similar in appearance, but males have a more slender abdomen and longer legs. They can bite, but do not pose a threat to humans or pets.
