Dear Juzza2,
Several years ago we read that populations of this distinctive Scarab Beetle known as a Cockchafer were on the decline, though in recent years the number of identification requests for Cockchafers from the UK is on the rise.  It is possible that it was attracted to lights, which would explain its presence in the home.

  1. How closely related is that to the species of what we call “June Bugs” is that?
