Spider Identification

Can someone identify this spider for me please?

 

It is black, but its back is more of a brown colour, and there is a fine white stripe down the middle of its back.

    I would like to see a little more of it, but I would be fairly comfortable that we are looking at Steatoda bipunctata here - aka the Rabbit Hutch spider. This is the most common and widespread of our six species of False Widow spiders, thought is not implicated in bites. Found round about most homes and gardens helping to keep the numbers of other invertebrates, including some pests, in check.
