I'm guessing Rutpela maculata, but know little about this species, though we get several kinds of Longhorn in our garden. Very distinctive black and yellow markings on elytra. Resting on Ox-eye Daisy in the rain, a couple of metres from a small Hawthorn, a few more metres from a Silver birch and not far from old decking. Nearly 2cm long. Black head and pronotum. Antennae had striped appearance, presumably because segment colour fades at one end.
