Elm Sphinx Caterpillar?

Looking for confirmation here, and possibly an explanation as to why a North American native has found it's way to sunny Luton.

I think this is an Elm Sphinx caterpillar. Can anyone confirm. I didn't manage to get a clear shot of the head, unfortunately, but the hanging tail spike covered a small brown patch at the rear and the feet are small, slightly browned spikes at the front. It was about 2 inches long.
