Bumblebee mimic

Observation - Bumblebee mimic - UK and Ireland. Description: Kept getting buzzed by this relatively large fly which eventually settled long enough to photograph. I think it's a hoverfly that mimics bumblebees. Can't find a match in my hoverfly book though so need a bit of help please.
