Can anyone identify this bug?

17 years ago

Hi there,

I know the picture isn't too good, but the thing goes manic when I approach the glass. From the tip of its anntena to the end of its `stinger` (sorry I don't know the proper word!) its between 1.5 and 2 inches long. I live in Northern England and I haven't seen anything like this before. Saying that we are in the middle of a heatwave (yes I know its not normal for England) so I don't know if it's just on its holiday from abroad somewhere. Either way I'm slightly concerned about it as it looks nasty, and I have small kids. Can anyone help. P.S. if I can get a better picture I will post it ASAP.
