Any ideas please what these are?  Flattish, bit jelly like but move like a caterpillar.  
In my daughter’s garden so I haven’t seen them.

    She’s just sent a video, it moves like a maggot.

    I've found them, Hover Fly larvae.

    😊

    You’d never imagine in your wildest dreams that they could turn into a hover fly, would you?

    No you wouldn’t,  strange that she saw lots of them and they were different colours.
