Spider ID- false widow?

Good morning all. I found this in the kitchen this morning, could someone confirm if it is a false widow? If so what should I do with it and is there anyone who would like to be informed for research purposes? Many thanks.  P.s. Location Penarth, Nr Cardiff, South Wales

    Hi Richard,

     

    This is a harmless missing sector orb weaver (Zygiella x-notata), very common & widespread. They particularly like window frames (inside & out).

     

    I have 6 in my front room, countless on the exterior walls/windows...you'll see them everywhere now that you are aware of them.

     

    Regards, Mark,
