Spider identification - False widow in Surrey?

Please could someone help me identify this spider, found at our home in East Molesey, Surrey? Its body measures c. 5mm diameter, and we found it in a spindly, messy looking web on our garage door.


Also, please advise on what to do with it. Is it safe to leave it in the garden with small children about, or should I rehome it in a nearby open space? We are not keen on destroying it, unless it is considered an invasive pest. It is currently living in a jam jar in our kitchen.


Thanks for your kind assistance.
