In London, four schools are closed for a few weeks because of the noble false-widow spider. this spider is around 14mm long and is ponderous, solitary and non-aggressive; it could bite and cause pain similar to a wasp sting, but there are only two records of this species biting a human in the whole Europe.  noble false-widow spider is the most common false widow found in UK, specially in autumn.
