What looks like a massive cobweb has been spotted in Bay of Plenty over the weekend. It's reported to look like it covers an area of about 30m, at Gordon Spratt Reserve in Papamoa, after many parts of the area suffered heavy rain and flooding.

Dr Simon Pollard is a spider biologist at the University of Canterbury. He's here to shed some light on what people were seeing.
