Help Identifying Spider - possibly Columbian

Stroud, United Kingdom

We had a spider run across a lads hand at work while he putting out Bananas, country of Origin was Columbia although there's always a slight chance it could be domestic (UK)
Sadly because it came in the Bananas from a foreign place policy forces us to preserve it in the freezer, poor little thing only wanted a holiday

Any idea what spider it is?

Pics... failed first time around

Attempt number 2 :/

Forgot to mention, the body is about an inch in length total, legs are roughly an inch each

Cannot be positive of a specific i.d.; possibly a sac spider - see for an example. These have a very wide distribution, including Britain.

That does look very similar, the colours are alot more bold/opaque on the one we caught but it's very close to it, pics weren't great can't take a decent one through the container, thanks for the help :)

Please keep in mind that most spider species, like humans, can demonstrate a good deal of individual variation.
