Big Spider spotted today.

15
Found 1st Jan
i went out shopping today and on the pavement moving very slowly was a spider I have never seen before. it was big but was very docile probably the cold. Spiders don't really bother me so I tried to move it out the way and it went on its back and got a bit grumpy and tried to attack. Does anyone know what it is, is it possibly a tube web spider as found a picture similar but the abdomen doesn't have the same markings. ta

Think I have already answered myself, searching more I'm pretty certain it's a tube web unless anyone else thinks differently?

Best to kill it just to be sure
I have a few False Widows knocking about on my conservatory eves which look similar.

this is a lot bigger than a false widow, if it is a tube web then these spiders are the enemy and the false widow run in fear of them. look at the video further down the news report thats how big it is
