Eurofighter Typhoons look just like that at high altitude, the second picture especially.

Just spoke to the guy and he says it wasn't high altitude, he's a 54 yr old archaeologist who spent most of his working life in QC at a metal plant, often on defence contracts,very level headed and not a big UFO buff, in his opinion it wasn't any plane that should be flying in UK airspace.
According to him the gf saw it called his attention to it and he had time to find it with his camera get 1 shot then it turned around in a very tight turn and flew off fast, against the wind, in the opposite direction to which it was originally been going he was able to get 1 more just after it turned.
As I say an educated and level headed couple saw it and watched it turn and in their opinions it wasn't bird, plane, copter, balloon or debris.

I'm intrigued by your suggestion that being an archaeologist makes someone an expert in aircraft identification.
