What is this grub?

Hi there,

Any idea what this is - or what it will become? I find a lot when weeding - wondering if I should squash them



Thank you

    Yes, my first thought was leatherjacket (cranefly larva)  - I squidge them and put them where the blackbirds will find them.  If you have chickens they'll like them image

    They eat the roots of your lawn and some other plants. image

    Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes.
