I agree it's very strange and I'd also like to know what it is!

Aphid

Looking at it, it would appear to be the empty skin on an aphid from which a parasite has emerged, note the nice circular hole in the abdomen.

Could it be a tick?

Just a thought. I did a Google image search for 'ticks uk' and found several that looked similar.
Later - suggestion retracted - it appears to have long antennae so can't be a tick.
