Lightroom CC: Thinks it's found duplicates on import but is mistaken

Lightroom CC (v1) is showing a few greyed out photos when I import from my SD card. It believes these are duplicates but they are not - I just took them this afternoon. After searching around for the filenames in my library, there are indeed other photos with the same file name (from 2013). So I'm unable to import my new photos as there's no option to ignore the suspected duplicate warnings. Lightroom Classic doesn't seem to have this problem, and allows me to import without finding these 'faux' duplicates. Perhaps it's to do with folder structure in Classic vs CC? Lightroom CC needs smarter ways to detect duplicates as the suspected photos are very different (apart from sharing the same file name).

I told you not to go to Lightroom CC! ;-)  Stick with Classic.

Yeah i'm regretting switching now. It seemed so shiny and cool! But i'm finding too many issues and missing features, so i'll be switching back to Classic for the time being.
