Can anyone confirm the id of this moth? (1 Viewer)

I'm a beginner to moths but recently came across this individual in my garden in North West Wales. After a lot of searching the closest match I found was the eastern tent caterpillar moth. This is not a native UK moth, and their isn't much evidence of them being in the UK (that I have found atleast) except a few posts by disgruntled gardeners. However I don't see any other similar commoner moths. Any help?

Edit: Its a lackey moth, dont know how I missed it while searching, thanks to

Farnboro John for the id.​
