Wasp-like fly?

Observed: 10th September 2013 By: David Lea

This small, what I would describe as a 'wasp-like fly' came into the house yesterday. Overall about 3/4" long, brown bodied with redish legs. Had a noticeable point to it's 'tail' (ovipositor or sting maybe?) Think I've seen similar before but not common sightings around here. Would be grateful if anyone can assist with an ID, thanks.

    Likely ID
    An Ichneumonid wasp
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
