Please help to ID this blue beetle

I would appreciate help in identifying this blue beetle that I saw today as I have never seen anything like it before.  It is about 5mm in length and, whilst the attached image is not in focus, it does show the features of the beetle and the light-blue colour is reasonably accurate.

 

I searched the area for some time and it was the only beetle of its kind and colour that I could find.  It was walking along the leaves of reed and grass that were growing within 2m of one of the main lakes at Stanwick Lakes in Northamptonshire.  It did not appear to be eating.
