False widow spider: Woman has finger amputated after bite
A woman has had her finger amputated after being bitten by a false widow spider.
Andrea Wallace, from Seaham, County Durham, was bitten in a Sunderland park and described the result as "like something out of a horror movie".
The attack left her with flesh-eating bug necrotising fasciitis, which required 10 weeks in hospital.
