After much discussion & research I finally decided I thought this bird was a hybrid of a Canada Goose with a Pink-Footed goose. I knew it wasn't a pure Canada goose as the neck is brown not black. I think the other goose's markings relate more to the Pink-Footed Goose rather than the Greylag goose because of the beak colouring & marking.
