Found today in my garden in Kent, England.
Do you think you've got an example of Graphocephala fennahi,the Rhododendron Leafhopper - it's a fairly distinctive looking chap isn't it?! It's originally a native of the USA but has been in the UK since the 1900s. Have a look at the following page on British Bugs: http://www.britishbugs.org.uk/homoptera/Cicadellidae/Graphocephala_fennahi.html
I saw this little creature fly into a spider's web. No spider came to welcome it so I carefully rescued it and took some pics. Afterwards I released it. Lucky little leafhopper, you might think. Nikon D50 with Sigma 150mm macro.
