hello me and my son saw this spider while tidying up in the garden today in Leeds it had a slate bluecolour tinge to it and fairly big looking fangs
have attached some photos and a video of it
any ideas what is it ?

Hi Edna & Vincent,
I can't get the video to run, but as far as the stills are concerned, this looks like a lace weaver, most likely the black lace weaver (Amaurobius ferox).
we hadn't noticed the marking on the abdomen but on looking back on the photos we could see it now
I'm glad I didn't pick it up !
