Beetle identification

Anyone know what this beetle is? Not clear photos I know, but hope that the distinctive colouration will help. About 6-7mm long, round, with beautiful iridescent green/purple fore-and-aft stripes. Found on blackberry (?) leaves within privet hedge Harlow, Essex, summer 2012; clear evidence of leaves eaten this year too, but no beetles seen so far. My Collins field guide doesn't show it.SAM_0023.JPGSAM_0021.JPGSAM_0022.JPG
