On behalf of Sue who sent in an email:-

Thrush like in size and shape. Red throat and bib. Seen in NW London recently by my son in law. Possibly an accidental red throated thrush as seen in second photo?

Looks like a common rosefinch

Can't provide an identification (if that pinky chin is not a trick of the light), but it's definitely not a finch of any kind. Look at the bill.
If it wasn't for the colour, I'd say it was a young starling.
