Large hornet/wasp approximately 1.5" in length
Large brownish eyes, body the colour of a yellow pepper and similar looking texture. Rested on leaf of euphorbia in suburban garden in Norwich close to wooded areas . Large brownish thorax unlike other wasps or hornets I've seen. Looking at images of Asian Giant Hornets - seems most likely to resemble these rather than native wasp or hornet species.
