These grubs to the naked eye were grey with a shiny black head. They were about 15mm long and quite active. They had a maggoty look to them.The photos are not the best partly because my gear is not the best and the little brutes would not keep still. They were together in some number in the leaf mould and soil at the bottom of a beech hedge.

Just checked out other images of Bibionidae and that is exactly what I was seeing.
Very many thanks cricketmoth.
