It's like a giant aphid , about 8mm, but I think it's the nymph stage of a bug?

I agree it's Green Shieldbug

Thanks, Chris.

Looking at http://www.britishbugs.org.uk/heteroptera/Pentatomidae/palomena_prasina.... it seems to match 4th instar, possibly the next stage though. I should have noticed the detailed markings, I'll know next time.
