A FARNHAM woman was forced to seek emergency treatment last Saturday after she was bitten by a "dangerous and aggressive" spider while she was asleep.

Ellen Ashby, 22, believes she was bitten on the wrist by a venomous South American recluse spider and rushed to see her GP with a "large bubble-like blister" after reading about a Tilford woman who was bitten by a similar spider just days before.
