Arachnophobes beware as a giant spider will be crawling into the city this weekend so make sure you don’t get caught in its web.

Arachnobot, the world's first giant spider puppet, will be going on an eight-legged walkabout around intu Chapelfield shopping centre and Chapelfield Plain on Saturday, August 10.

The four-metre tall spider will appear at four times for 20 minutes across the day with the chance for brave shoppers to meet the gangly creature at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm.
