Dear ??,
We had no idea where CH43 9AJ is located, but a web search produced:  “
CH43 9AJ. Postal code in Birkenhead, England.”  This is a Sawfly, a non-stinging relative of Bees and Wasps.  Based on an image on NatureSpot, we are quite confident it is Zaraea fasciata, and the site states:  “Uncommon with most British records coming from England and Wales.”  According to UK Wildlife, it is commonly called the Honeysuckle Sawfly.
