The first one on Ragwort (not visible on the underside of the leaf):

The second was on Primrose, also barely visible on the underside of the leaf:

Anybody have any ideas? Chris Yeates maybe?

Not me guv :? I tend to have a bigger appetite. The best sites to check these out are:
http://www.leafmines.co.uk/
and
http://www.bladmineerders.nl/
Yours look like agromyzid mines (Diptera), perhaps http://www.leafmines.co.uk/html/Diptera/L.strigata.htm on the Senecio and http://www.leafmines.co.uk/html/Diptera/C.primulae.htm for the one on Primula.
best wishes
Chris
