A Glasgow electrician got the shock of his life when he opened a lighting panel to find this GIANT spider tucked up inside.

The sparky, who doesn't want to be named, says he doesn't mind spiders but this one was no normal house arachnid.

He said: "I don't usually mind spiders but this thing didn't belong in this country.

"It actually made a noise scuttling across the bottom of the panel."

He added: "Trust me that thing will have long died of natural causes before that door is getting opened again."

It's not the first time we've seen HUGE spiders creep into the west of Scotland.

Last year we told how a venomous Huntsman spider left workers terrified after it crawled out of a container in Dumbarton. 

Evening Times:

The giant hunting spider was discovered at a manufacturing business in Lomondgate.

The company ships generator parts to Scotland from India and China and it appears the stow away fancied an overseas trip. 

The Scottish SPCA attended the scene and removed the arachnid.
