Many thanks to Mike Denton who identifed and confirmed this is a nymph of Palomena prasina or Common Green Shield Bug. The vestigial wing cases make it a nymph - an adult would have the wingcases extending along the abdomen and they would overlap. On a beetle the wing cases join in a straight line - a feature that is very noticeable on ladybirds.
