Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I have no idea what spider this is, I was cutting up an old fence and I've never seen one like this before which has obviously freaked me a little, I'm not one to fear spiders, I usually leave them in my house to catch the flies, can someone id this one for me please?

Steatoda species, can’t be sure from the pic of the species as it’s a bit blurry, but either Steatoda gross or Steatoda bipunctata.
They are not harmful, no UK spider is dangerous.
