Orange spider

Would anyone know what this spider is? I seen it in the street and wasn't sure if it is native to the UK or if I should be weary of it??

    Hi NatalieC2708,

     

    It's a garden spider (Araneus diadematus), very common in the UK, though that is a very brightly covered specimen. Their colouration does vary considerably.

     

    Regards, Mark.
