On behalf of John who sent in an email:-

Sized approx same as a wagtail. White head. Black back with appearance of white strips on wing edges. Grey underbody. Seen very active on raised local authority garden in Minehead apparently seeking food of some sort. 

Have never seen similar before. Unable to photograph.

Can anyone help?

If it looked like a wagtail (longish tail) and bobbed about, it was almost certainly a wagtail and the white face / head suggests a 'White Wagtail', close relative of  'Pied Wagtails' that sometimes exhibit extra white areas on the face.
