Your earwig has wings ruling out Anisolabis maritima, which is a wingless species. I think yours is probably an immature European Earwig (Forficula auricularia), compare with:

It might safest to back it out to Order (Dermaptera), if you're not convinced.

The specimen has wings (although it is a juvenile). Anisolabis maritima is wingless
