The miner looks dipterous to me Andy.The irregularly dispersed frass is a good clue. Moth miners usually have some kind of pattern to theirs.

I think the tort is Celypha lacunana.

Hi Andy
I agree with Charly on both counts. The larva is certainly dipterous and is possibly the one in this link and thus notable

I am almost certain Charly is right with his ID of the tort but its definately one of the Olethreutinae.
