It has been confirmed that at 4.30pm a van carrying pet shop supplies overturned and some of the cargo escaped and are now wandering the westerhope/ newbiggan hall area (Ne5). There has been confirmed reports that amongst the cargo there was at least 200 extreamly large arachnids. Two venimous scorpions, and 32 snakes. The public should be aware that many of these are venimous and their bite could be fatal. If you come across any of these you should contact your local animal handler to collect the critter safely. Our experts suggest that these creatures will instinctively seek shelter from the cold weather which unfortunately means they will try and get into your home. They're used to warm climates and a cosy living room will be extreamly appealing to them.If you or anyone you know is bitten by any of the animals you should contact your nearest emergency room or call 111 for advice.
