"Not unless they're imported, as pets, and escape. No spider, unless seriously provoked, is dangerous in any country, in fact they're more beneficial to us than most insects."

"Yes, the United Kingdom has over 650 different species of spiders, 12 of which are venomous enough to cause humans severe pain. The most feared spider in Britain is none other than the notorious false widow spider, which is the most venomous of all"
