DAILYMAIL.COM - A father collapsed in a toy shop after he was bitten ten times by the UK's most dangerous spider.

Chris Galton had been shopping at children's store Toys R Us with wife, Zoe, and one-year-old daughter, Imogen, when he suddenly became unwell and dropped to the floor.

The spider, whose body is bigger than a five pence coin, is thought to have dropped into Mr Galton's hooded top from foliage growing close to Mr Galton's home.
