Spider or Pretender ?

Spider or Imposter

I found this in Woodland amongst brambles and low-lying scrub. Its very distinctive in terms of it stretches its legs out along the web. It was close to a number of Garden Orb Spiders in their webs but when you look at this creature its jaws are massive and its behaviour in the web is very different. Is it a true spider or an imposter?
