False Widow?

I contacted you yesterday but my picture of the spider wasn't very clear I hope this is better for you to identify.

Many thanks

    Hi Emma,

     

    This is a Zygiella species AKA the missing sector orb weaver, very common around window frames....there are probably some in every house in the country.

     

    You can see that the head is light brown at the sides but dark/black in the middle, false widows are not typically coloured like this.
