Archant

At first glance, this picture might suggest a huge spider is dodging traffic and making its way across the A14.

However, you do not have to worry about a giant eight-legged creature on the loose in the county - a spider has simply walked over the lens of a traffic camera.

The well-timed picture was taken by John Lawrence, who was checking the level of traffic on the A14 just outside of Ipswich.

Mr Lawrence waited until the spider was in the perfect position before savign the image, thus making it seem like the arachnid was crossing the dual-carriageway.

Joking that it looked like the spider may have mutated as a result of the current pandemic, he added: “We were told that it is highly unlikely that Covid-19 would affect wildlife in any way.”
