I have a small plastic compost outside the back door, when full, it goes into the main bin at top of garden. As it gets fuller, I have noticed bugs? on the sides, they look a bit like small maggots. Anyone got any idea what they might be please?

No expert-but are they just simply maggots-does it matter that much?

Definetely not, about half the size. Apart from the fact maggots make my skin crawl, not really bothered, just wonder what they are.
I'm a lazy gardener too !

Could be baby worms, or larvae of the small flies you often get in compost heaps.

Did wonder if that's what they are, thanks.
Thought of something in the night that I wanted to query , can't think what it was now. Old age strikes again !
