Could it be Bronze Shieldbug?

I don't know but I wondered if it could be a white - Final instar nymph? As per British Bugs website example.

I think the identification up

I think the identification up at the top is correct. It is called the Cabbage or Brassica bug, under the Pentatomidae classification.

Antennae are the key...

These nymphs can be tricky, but this one has the thin pale antennal band of Troilus luridus - and everything else as well.
