Bright Line Brown Eye Moth Caterpillar

Very pleased to find this attractive caterpillar on our tomato plant on the allotment today.
It took ages to identify it from the internet when I got home.... Laconobia oleracea..
I was less enamoured with it when I discovered it's other name 'tomato moth'. 
Hmm, I wish I hadn't put it back on the leaf where I'd found it!!
