It should be Heliophanus flavipes

Thanks Chris, I'll change it
Don't the dark streaks on the legs suggest cupreus rather than flavipes? I don't claim to be expert on salticids though.
According to Roberts field guide, H. cupreus has black markings on the femora of all four leg pairs. H. falvipes usually has markings on femora 3 and 4. This applies to the females. But I suspect you need to examine the genitalia to be certain.
- I can see dark streaks on femora I and II, at least on the spider's left side. I feel Heliophanus sp. is safer.
I'll have to agree with Alan, having looked at images of both species I agree it is not conclusive either way. Sorry Kieran.
