Number 1 was taken in West Yorkshire in mid-September. Is it a Yellow Legged Gull juvenile?

Number 2 taken at Llaneli WWT in mid-August 2017 - could it also be a Yellow Legged Gull juvenile or Lesser Black Backed Gull ?

Thanks

first one is a LBBG. as for the second one, this is a bit hard without seeing tail pattern and inner wings. still, looks more like a LBBG to me (usually YLGs by mid august have replaced many scapulars and have more worn juvenile feathers).
