what is this spider in my house?

Saw a weird spider in my kitchen.  It bit my husband when he picked it up and put it out. Now seen a few webs outside with similar looking spiders but not sure if they are the same type. Any ideas? Are they the same spider and what are they?

    Wow, this is a day for these. It's Segestria florentina the Tube Web Spider. Lots of people noticing them today. Always best to catch them under a cup and slide a bit of paper underneath, rather than in the hand. They're known to be a little bitey and it's usually people who aren't scared of spiders that get bitten!
