Unknown beetle

Swarms of these beetles came across Tolpuddle (Dorset) at Dusk. They crashed into tents and Campers, got in peoples hair and for an hour made a nuisance of themselves. Then they were gone.
This happened three nights running.

Thanks for feed back.

Yes this specimen is damaged, ive had it in a bag since last summer and only found it when i moved house. They were big, quite intimidating and made a noise so i guess this is them.
