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.

Thanks All,the link is very interesting thanks Paul and it has to be Celypha lacunana the pics on UKmoths are a dead ringer.
