Thought Guillemot, unsure now, another photo near a Wigeon for size comparison.
No interactions present.
Impossible to say what this is from the angle shown. Do you have anything to give us more chance?!
My Flickr photos...
That's it i'm afraid. Along with the earlier post. The bird in question is on the left of the picture, not the Wigeon in the centre.
I wrongly assumed it was the bird in the centre, sorry.

As I have suggested on the other picture, I think that a female Wigeon is the most likely answer. The grey bill with a dark tip is correct for a Wigeon, and the size and association with a male all point to this ID.
Edit: Actually, this picture makes it look a bit small. Not sure!
Lot's of Wigeon at this time of year at Scalby Mills. Pretty sure this is not a Wigeon. Don't know!!!
It is one of those pictures which will never be tied down as there is just not enough to go on. From your first picture, I do reckon Wigeon is the answer (females do have a large white underside, and I think a bit of brown is visible on the flank...and the bill fits).
I'll take that as an answer, thank you.
After a bit of digging, I now believe the bird on the left and on the other photo to be a Tufted Duck, what do you think?
I though about that originally, but it is an unusual place for a Tufted Duck, and the presence of other Wigeon nearby made that more likely. It could be, though; in reality, you will never know for sure!
