Anyone recognise this flower? I think it’s self-seeded.

It looks a bit like Soapwort - Saponaria officinalis.

Bindweed, pretty flowers but a thug of a plant!

It looks like a Phlox.

I'm with beebumble, it's a phlox.

Is it scented? I'd say phlox too. Definitely not bindweed.

If it’s smallish and coming from runners with stringy stems and getting everywhere it’s soapwort. If it’s more upstanding and taller (probably with a stronger scent) it’s phlox.

Can you give more details or another photo?

I think the petals would be more separated if it were soapwort, so I'd go for Phlox. Definitely not a bindweed - wrong leaf shape.

Thanks for the replies! I took another photo before I went to work but it was a bit rubbish. Further photo attempt (and scent test) tomorrow morning....
