Two of the most common types of cockroach pest in the UK are the Oriental cockroach (Blatta orientalis) and the German cockroach (Blattella germanica). They prefer the warmer temperatures offered inside a building, and will be found hiding around heating ducts, pipes, stoves, sinks, and humid areas like bathrooms.
