Bombus Pascuorum maybe.

Aberrant B pascuorum?

Assuming it's not some migrant or introduced species, it's difficult to see what it could be other than a strange-looking form of B. pascuorum.

Thanks to all

No one has disagreed with the comments to date, so I am glad that an ID has now been added.

I agree with what has been said above but I believe it is a Common Carder Bee. Regards Chris
