The look like planaria but it's hard to judge size from the pictures. They are extremely common and spring up in most tanks at some point. You either want to eradicate them or aren't particularly fussed by them, depending on your view point. It's shrimp only tanks where they are more troublesome.

Hi
Yes probably mini leaches as I call them....I've had them before, best ditching the 'substrate' and starting again!
What substrate do you have?

Thank you again Mort but i think they are mini leaches.

I bought a slightly dubious looking glass trap from Chinese eBay- effectively a tube you can bait, which they find it difficult to get out of. Worked pretty well!
