Interesting

Can't wait for an ID. I have also never seen a red one.

ID & pink colour

The sharply angled lines on the sides of the pronotum and the associated dark mark (which does not reach the back of the pronotum) suggest this is a Field Grasshopper. "A photographic guide to the grasshoppers and crickets of Britain and Ireland" by Evans & Edmondson has 32 pictures of this species showing the huge variation in colour.
