Many thanks for the ID Crystal. The reason I said Six Spot was becase the book I looked in had the Five Spots only to be found in the South and Wales.....a hell of a distance from us up here in the North East!!!

I'm not sure where you are exactly Cheryl but Narrow-bordered Five-spot (Zygaena lonicerae) goes from what looks like the border of Scotland all the way down the country. Five-spot Burnet (Zygaena trifolii) seems to have just as wide a distribution, although is more concentraied to the east when you get further north.
