Unknown Insect

I found an insect today while picking raspberries in my back garden and was wondering whether anyone would be able to help identify it. Here are the details:


Location: Lancashire

Time: 12 noon

Found: Inside a raspberry

Length: 1cm

Legs: 6

Description: Black body with a yellow stripe running half way down the abdomen on both sides after the last pair of legs. 4 small yellow dots in a square pattern on mid abdomen. Segmented body with white ring separating head from body. Flexible abdomen starting behind last pair of legs. Small spines pertruding from abdomen.


Here are a couple of pictures to help:
