Man blows himself up trying to kill spider

A man suffered serious burns after he blew himself up trying to kill a spider.

Christopher Robinson, 28, had tried to attack the spider with an aerosol can at his home in Clacton in Essex.

He had been called by his wife to deal with a spider she had seen going behind the lavatory on Monday.

Unable to reach it, the man decided to kill it by spraying it.

He used a cigarette lighter to see, but it ignited the fumes and caused an explosion.

The blast was so strong it blew him off his feet.
