  1. I think that's Leptoglossus occidentalis - Western Conifer Seed Bug - one of the Leatherbugs. It has that characteristic white zigzag mark on the forewings. It's a quite recent colonist from USA (2007) and being recorded regularly now in southern Britain.

  2. Thanks Mick! That looks right to me.
