    Given the pointed fork on the tail, my best guess is an earwig larva.

    Yeah,  the tail does look like an earwigs tail.

    I don’t think it’s an earwig - we get loads of earwigs & the young look exactly like the adults only much smaller. I can’t help with an ID though

    I'd say it's a ground beetle larva.
