Moth ID Help - London

I found these moths in a friend's moth trap and I am unsure as to what species they are. I am a complete beginner with moths so any help is much appreciated! His moth trap is in a small urban garden in south London if that helps and the trap was set last night (30/06). Any ideas? Thank you!
