Spotted snake millipede

We found these spotted snake millipede Blaniulus guttulatus in one of the broad beans we planted about a month ago. We thought maybe the seed had rotted but in fact these little devils had got in there - having said that, according to the Pied Piper they wouldn't have got in there if the bean wasn't already damaged.
