Can you help identify this insect (see pics) please?

I saw the tiny white eggs on top of a rocket lettuse leaf, when I turned it over I saw what I thought were also eggs but black and round. 

Then they started moving onto the eggs, stayed there for a while then went back under the leaf and clustered together.

They are very small so pictures difficult, but please have a look.

They have 6 legs and I think they probably have wings.  Dark amost black colour with a reddish stripe across the lower back and 2 antenna at the front..

I think one must have hatched and is a paler version of the adults, but I can't see a discarded egg!..

So if you could tel me what these are I'd be very grateful..P1010712.JPGP1010717.JPG
