Ned, Possibly Porrostoma rhipidium, Long-nosed Lycid (Net-winged) beetle, but a side-on view would be good for confirmation. There are a few lookalikes.

Hi @AlisonMilton I've added a photo that shows a bit of the side-on view. It's not great but it's the best I took of the side.

Thanks Ned. Still not very disguishable but perhaps someone with more experience will be able to identify it from other features. I know it's not always easy to get a side view on insects.
