A sawfly, probably a Tenthredo sp (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae),  feeding on hogweed flowers.  There are several Tenthredo species like this in the UK (T. notha, T. arcuata, T. brevicornis) but they are difficult to separate on the basis of photographs (see this discussion), so I will not attempt to take the identification any further.

Photo taken in Barnard Castle, County Durham, Uk, on 2010-08-07.
