Thousands of caterpillars created a tourist attraction in the Scottish city of Stirling on Saturday (May 28) after weaving a 10-metre web outside a DIY store.

The huge ‘fairy floss-like’ web in the car park of the store was cordoned off as visitors came to inspect it.

The insects build the webs to deter predators.
