The nasty one is the Harlequin which, as usual is an invader from the continent.
Thank you all.

~apparently non predatory they eat nasty fungi and mildew~must admit that I would have thought thiis was one of the bad guys but it is defensive colouring to make you think it is nasty!

Thanks Pansy and Arlene.
This is actually the Twenty Two Spot Ladybird - Psyllobora 22-punctata. As Arlene says, it feeds on mildews and is abundant in grassy areas.
