beetle id

these two beetles were found on Hackney Marshes on Wed 23rd July. I don't know of any British ones that look like this. Is it possible to identify them?

Thank you

    That looks like Stictoleptura cordigera.  It's not currently listed as a British species, although it's present on the continent.  We do get occasional accidental imports of foreign longhorns in timber, but this might have hopped the channel and be new to Britain if it got established.  Someone needs to get down there and get a specimen.
