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.
