Interesting bug found in the garden....can't find it in my field guides.

Please could you help us identify a bug we found in the garden this morning? 


It was similar in shape to a silver fish but smaller and without any visible bristles.  It looked like a beetle but with the tail of a silver fish, it was a deep red/brown colour but had some black stripes. The most unusual feature was a gold band across its "shoulders".


It was a beauty, although tiny, I'd love to find out what it was, never seen one before.


Many thanks.
