    Just found this in our garden in an old plastic bucket. Must of been at least 5cm in length and I have never seen one of these before.

    That looks like a musk beetle to me - do you live near wetlands? Most commonly found near wetlands like the fens and broads in east anglia

    Yes recently moved into the fens.

    Bloody horrible thing it was. Also have many false widow spiders here. Thanks for your reply.
