Help to ID this bug?

Hi there,


Our flat in London is being overtaken by these fellas - sorry about the poor quality picture but we haven't got a better camera. We've found about 20 of these bugs in the last few days, they're about 1.5cm long (but varying), mostly found sitting on a wall in a dark staircase but also crawling round in other parts of the flat. They mostly crawl quite slowly and seem pretty docile, though one of them surprised us by opening its wings and flying for a foot or two. That's the only time we've seen one fly, which I guess means they have wings!


As you can see, the bugs are almost orange in colour, with light brown and going to darker brown towards the eges.


We're a bit worried about our flat being taken over by these monsters and any germs they might be carrying around. Can anyone help??


Many thanks
