Millipede
(Tachypodoiulus niger)
Description:

Found under an old log. 25mm long. Pointed telson so perhaps Ophyiulus pilosus or Julus scandinavius. Overall, colour suggests J. scandinavius to me.
Edit: additional photo added; size corrected (from 3.5mm); title changed to match D.M.H.'s ID - thanks.

Oops!

Actually nearer 25mm. Having had a closer look at a dead (and therefore less mobile) specimen today I think I agree with D.M.H.
