Hi Ches,

I think it's one of the later nymph stages of the green shield bug; they go through a number of nymph stages before becoming full adult beetles.  They live off plant sap, but don't cause any real damage, so no need to worry.

I'd agree. No need for alarm. RHS info on green shield bug https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=519
