Unknown beetle

Observation - Unknown beetle - UK and Ireland. Description: I found this beetle, lying on its back, pathetically waving its legs in the air, in the middle of a path through Welton Dale (East Yorkshire). It was approx. 3 cms in length and was very slow moving when I turned it back onto its legs.
