Your thoughts on what kind of hybrid is that? My guess would be bream + rudd.

I could be wrong here, but to me, it's not deep enough in the body to be a Bream/Rudd hybrid. Looking at the eyes, Roach/Rudd maybe?

Its a fantail bucket runner. Similar to a female corsey edge biter. ??

Nah, it's a brown goldfish. Loads of them in a pond at Belton near Sandtoft. The owner asks you to transfer them into another pond if you catch one.

It's a brown version of a goldfish variety known as a comet. They have a single elongated tail, unlike a fantail that has a double tail.

Bream/roach hybrid plenty on the river I fish and they look just like that, roach like in the body but with lots of bream slime sometimes they even have the extendable bream lips

Yeah that's a bream/roach hybrid
Fins are spot on for a bream, body and colour is right for a roach
