Brown Spots on Helenium

On my morning walkround, I saw some brown spots on my helenium which I've never noticed until today.

One thing I have seen over the last couple of weeks is that some of the leaves are crinkly.

A few weeks back I did see some aphid larvae and eggs on there which I scraped off. Could it be something to do with them? What do I need to do?

    It could well be something to do with the aphids you found. Has any more damage occurred since, do you know ?

    I don't think it has. I was a bit alarmed yesterday when I saw some of the leaves had wilted, but upon further inspection, it was due to the stems being broken. Presumably a result of cats using the beds as a highway!
