Does anyone know what type of fixing this is and how I can remove it? Image

Looks like a rawlbolt sleeve . Removing it could prove very messy and create a larger hole than you have now. Probably the best option would be to knock it further into the wall and fill over.

anything that comes to hand, masonry drill bit, bit of wood, old screwdriver +hammer

You only need 5mm or so to polyfill over.

Hammer and piece of threaded rod, rebar, drive rod (T-handle) from a socket set, very large old screwdriver, etc. It just needs something of steel with a large enough diameter to sit on the end of the Rawlbolt. Or as Johnny says - anything that comes to hand

Old screwdriver and hammer did the trick, all filled now. Thanks all
