What size was it please ?

Insect

I would say between 2 and 3 cm long. It never occurred to me to put it against something for scale, though if it helps I found if deep inside a (very large) well rotted compost heap. It was a rapid mover. Took me ages to get a close up photo of it in focus as it was scurrying around the plastic plant saucer at some speed!
