I'd say this is very hard -

To pin down at this stage. It looks rather like one of the Compositae (Asteraceae now?), maybe groundsel: but this is a guess. Keep and eye on it, and let's see a flower later on!

Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris)

Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris) is what i would guess too.

Groundsel?

Thanks for the suggestion, Roger and Norris.

I will keep an eye on it.

I don't think it's groundsel though. I don't have the vocabulary to explain why not . . it's not just that the leaves are wider but it has an air about it that suggests it will grow bigger.

I know what you mean, I think ...

The leaves are a little too jagged-edged and look slightly prickly. I agreed with the daisy family ...... maybe one of the hawkweeds or hawkbeards with sparse clusters of yellow dandelion-like flowers?
