There were these two spiders just outside my work today... little freaked out ( terrified of spiders!) and the little one looks like a widow which is even worse! the big one on the other hand I have no idea what it could be... Im not sure if the little one is a widow so any help would be great! ( sorry the pictures aren't that clear.. I wasn't brave enough to hang around too long to take a proper picture!)

Cannot be certain; the larger spider looks a little like a tube web spider - http://www.uksafari.com/florentina.htm
The smaller spider does appear to be one of the false widows (Steatoda sp.)
