Spider found underneath a table in a garden in a rural area of Nottinghamshire
No interactions present.
Thank you for this identification. If it helps further it had a deep russet, shiny body which was about 8-9mm. The legs weren't as long as on the species in the second photo added here and they were thicker.
I would plump for Steatoda bipunctata ,based on your description.
