Spectacular moth in my back garden

Observed: 28th July 2011 By: sansespoir3

I observed this moth in my back garden flying around, and thought it was a butterfly due to its spectacular orange colouring with markings. I was unable to snap it in flight, but would like to know more about this species.

Can you supply some more details to help us identify this interesting-sounding moth, such as:
What were the markings like?
Could you see a difference between the front wings and the hind wings?
What size was it?
