White caterpillar like insect on broad beans

i have had a really successful season with my broad beans this year, having planted them last year in August... Now the aphids are out in force and are killing the plants. I don’t mind too much as most of the beans have been picked and were successful in growing. 

i have seen a very unusual insect on the plants. Does anyone know what it is, and if it’s hurting the beans or simply feasting on the aphids? In the picture you can see four of them.

Thank you in advance.
