Can anyone confirm the ID of this tree in my garden please?  It's a mature tree, about 5 meters high and 4 meters wide.  The leaves turn bright red in Autumn.  It's definitely an Acer but I'm not sure which one!  Thank you.

    It looks a bit like Acer japonicum Aureum, but there are so many similar.
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    It's trunk looks like one of the Snake bark maples but the leaves are wrong.

    Thank you @Woodgreen, it's a bit messy at this time of year but makes an excellent screen!
