hoverfly?

I think this must be a hoverfly but can't see enough detail of wings and body markings to suggest anything more definite. Was it really that shade of purple or is that a trick of the light?

Cheilosia caerulescens?

Hi Martin,
Could it be Cheilosia caerulescens? Just a wild guess by the way! (they appear to like purple flowers....)
