Blood-sucking tick carrying killer disease VANISHES at news conference... Chaos...

Officials from the Miyazaki Prefectural Government brought the live beast along with a dead insect to the event in southwest Japan.

But when the dangerous tick was laid out on a table it managed to scuttle away prompting a dramatic search which failed to recover the arachnid.

The room was then showered with insecticide in a bid to stop the fanged beast.

Miyazaki Governor Shunji Kono apologised for the embarrassing incident today.

He said: “We should have been more careful about safety management as the prefecture is in a position to alert its people.
