Brit teenager left with 1 inch wound after being bitten by spider in her home

WARNING: Graphic images. Courtney Thompson said the wound  which was leaking pus was so vile that it made her sick.

An teen was left with a gruesome 2cm deep wound after being bitten by a spider in her home.

Courtney Thompson said the injury was so vile it left her feeling ‘sick’, as it leaked pus each time she changed her dressing.

The 19-year-old said she discovered a spider in her room in Crawley, Sussex, and called her mum in fear, however the eight-legged terror got away.

Three weeks later, the tiny bite had developed into a deep wound so Courtney visited the doctors who advised her to rush to A&E where it was confirmed it was a spider bite.
