Camponotus in the UK?

It may seem obvious, but I can't find the answer anywhere. This question is, are there any species of camponotus in the UK?
Thanks (sorry if I'm being an idiot).

They have supposedly popped up as non-native species in southern England, but they are not native nor common in the UK.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
