Fly Id.

Hi all
This fly was seen recently in Todmorden. I have an inkling it may be one of the Ichneumonoidea. We would appreciate a closer Id if anyone can.

It does look like an Ichneumon; beautiful wasps that don't sting but many lay their eggs in living caterpillars where the larvae develope and eventually kill the host.
