Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was jet black but really shiny (pic doesnt do it justice) not seen any spider that black or shiny before. This was taken in Hull, East Yorkshire, UK. Looked like a black widow but being in uk probably a false widow but didn't think they were that colour. Any help appreciated.

Did you get to look at its underside for a red hour-glass shape? I just found a black widow the other day in my home and it looked a lot like this.
