Gardening errors.....

Planting Chamerion angustifolium 'Album'/ White Willow Herb in a border after reading that is was 'gently invasive'.  Don't believe a word of it, within a year its roots had spread out to at least a meter all round the original plant and I am still digging bits out now after removing the original plant!!!

I grew one quite successfully in a pot until the frst bad winter 3 years ago - it looked realy woeful after that but although it lost most of its leaves it surprised me and came back.  The second bad winter was the end of it really and I decided it needed to much pampering so I didn't keep it.  I live in the SE.

What is this insect?

It looks like a Chafer larvae to me.  I find them when I dig up lawn to make new flower beds.  They eat grass roots mainly I think.
