I thought it could be this in the first place but decided against it because I believed it only grew in the US. I have also changed my mind about it being Spiked Water-milfoil because on reading my ou book Neighbourhood nature again it shows Water-milfoil as a totally submerged plant and my plant was floating-leaved and rooted at the bottom.
