Probably is a ladybird. They come in many different combinations of colour.
Hi, can you take a photo? It could be a ladybird
If you browse Kate Bradbury's blog (see right hand column, scroll to page two) she writes about the ladybirds she has seen. You may get more responses on the Wildlife thread.
This was the only ladybird I saw in my garden this year
studying the photo I counted nine spots!

ope you can find something which will help you..
Thanks BB have updated that thread now.
I didn't know they could bite we live and learn.
Just a thought, if you post 'Ladybirds' on the wildlife thread you could be starting a new topic, sure to get more responses.
There is a site called ladybird survey with good ID pages. There are black ladybirds with red spots as I looked it up when I fished one out the pond earlier this year.
There are also black (melanic??) forms of red ladybirds so in the end I couldn't ID mine.
Ouch! I'll look more closely in future.
VictoriaS, thanks for reminding me about that site found it useful then lost it!
Hi herb garden, yes, it's a ladybird, I have fair few of the black ones with 2red spots .... Currently teaming with ladybird larvae, so they're breeding somewhere
