Can you please help me identify this caterpillar?

Hi everyone,


I found this caterpillar in my garden today (29th September). It was on a weed leaf in the grass and I've never seen it before. Tried to identify it on some other websites, but can't see anything which matches except maybe being part of the fratillary family?


Photos were best I could do, but here is a description also...


Main colour, black

Orange fur / hairs in little tufts - 3-4 hairs per tuft

3 or 4 prominent White dots around the bottom

Yellow, white and red patterning down the sides


Any ideas? Any help appreciated because I'd love to know!
