Help needed identifying this Oil Beetle

Hi fellow beetle entusiasts, can someone tell me what species of Oil beetle this is, they were observed in May on a path on chalk grassland. Are they Black Oil Beetles [ Meloe proscarabaeus] or Violet Oil Beetles [ Meloe violaceus]. Below are some images I took of this wonderful species. Are they uncommon. Thank you in advance for you help. Peter.
