Can anyone help with this beetle

While mowing the front lawn , I noticed this beetle on a wild strawberry plant, since then I have also seen it in other parts of the garden.

 

It is a small beetle approx 5mm Head to Toe, with an irredescent blue tinge

    I thnik thats the Alder leaf beetle, Agelastica alni.  Formerly rare, it suddenly became extremely common in the North West in recent years.  I'm guessing you live within 25 miles of  Manchester?
