Large Striped Flea Beetle Phyllotreta nemorum (Linnaeus, 1758) 
Probably under recorded to a certain degree in Nottinghamshire and there are the customary 'several similar species' to ensure caution with identification. Found on various Brassicas and can be a pest of certain crops. The one illustrated was found on Horse Radish Amoracia rusticana at Wellow Dam in early July 2021. Phyllotreta nemorum has a rather patchy distribution over southern parts of the UK.
