    Aww bless.
    I once saw a big red one once, but it ran off somewhere.
    The only spiders I can cope with are money spiders.

    I saw a thing today that said there are mock black widow spiders living in the UK and they can bite, only really serious if you are allergic to the venom. Don't panic fc apparently they are black and purple.

    Looks like an immature/young house spider to me, but just in case, better add -I'm no expert ;)
