Attack of the giant spiders! – Giant arachnids invading our homes

editorial image

IT’S that time of year when spiders head inside for the warmth and shelter of our homes.

Our newsroom has been surprised by the size of the gangly beasts climbing our walls and darting across our carpets.

It is apparently down to the warm summer, which has allowed the eight-legged animals to thrive and grow extra large in time for the mating season.

Now we want to see your photos of the arthropods in Hartlepool so we can share the grizzly images with our readers.

Use the tool on this page to send us your snaps of the little monsters along with your details, including your name, whereabouts you live and your age.

We’ll put them all online and in the newspaper.

You can also tweet us @HpoolMail or like our page on Facebook.
