Bug found on bed.

Observed: 10th March 2012 By: DavidB

I have seen a few of these insects in my bedroom.
I live in Teesside, in the north east of England.
I'm trying to establish if this is a bed bug of some form. I have found 4 of them so far over the space of a week. Can anyone tell me what it is?

Not a bed bug or anything

Not a bed bug or anything similar - these take nectar as adults and eat organic matter such as wool, dead insects, etc, as larvae
