I live at the top of Lewes near the prison. I was just closing my window to go to bed when I sw a huge spider that I've never seen before. It had white and black markings around its back.
I went on Google to look at photos of British spiders. I saw the picture of the exact spider that I saw. It said false widow and was believed to bed all around the south of our country.
Watch out Lewes

We have them in the Pells area. But false widows are not "huge" - about the size of an ordinary autumn aranea garden spider.

Told me she was a widow - then her Old Man walks in. He was huge, but not quick like me - phew!

false widows have been recognised resident in this country since around 1900 give or take a decade. and the they are very frequently seen throughout the town however most people just ignore them as they are such a usual site at this time of yr , they are amazing for keeping mosquito's out of your homes perfect spider to have inhabiting the windows, granted preferably on the outside

Due to Daily Mail hype everyone thinks these are a new breed to the UK. They have been a common sight in the country for many many years. Don't panic people, its only a spider!
