Can you identify this spider please?

Can someone identify this black and white striped spider please?

I found it lowering intself from the back of a chair today after opening a bag of mixed bird seed nearby. I don't know if it came out of the bag or not.

Sorry about the poor quality of my photo.

    It's a jumping spider, looks good for Salticidae, I wouldn't like to guess which one from this photo but most likely S.scenicus. To help narrow it down further, we'll need a clearer photo and an idea of the scale. Roughly how big was it? And where abouts in the UK are you?
