Is this a False Widow?

Hi there.


My wife just found this critter after receiving a sharp pain on her finger while delving into a box stored in our South Wales garage.  Not certain if the spider was responsible, but it was in the right place at the right time.  We've moved around a lot recently so this fella (or lady?) could come from London, Essex, Warwickshire, Oxford or South Wales.  I thought it could be a false widow, but the markings on the back look a bit less extravagant than many of the false widow images I've seen online.  Also, the affected finger doesn't seem too bad.  Perhaps she wasn't bitten after all.


Many thanks for any help identifying the little scamp.
