Insects for ID please on Dock (Rumex) and Red Campion (Silene dioica)

Spotted the white deposit and discolouration looking for rust fungi then saw the insects. What are they?

The first set of photos of the insects on the Red Campion are Campion Aphids (Brachycaudus). They are either Brachycaudus lychnidis or Brachycaudus klugkisti but they can't be separated from a photo.
Always keep your eyes open... :shock:
