UNITED KINGDOM -- Millions of potentially lethal "false widow" spiders are appearing in gardens after being accidentally brought into the UK.  

The British Arachnological Society says this particular kind of spider was first spotted on the shores of Torquay in 1879.  

Records from 1992 onwards show well established colonies across Southern England.  

Now they're moving north, with one official sighting as far up as Norfolk.
