ID help needed! unknown invasive garden plant

Observed: 19th August 2012 By: simoncollister

Help! This really aggressively spreading plant appeared in flowerbeds approx. 2 years ago but is now spreading under garden turf and patio.
Am no epxert gardener but doesn't appear to be a 'classic' knotweed or bindweed. Or is it?
Any info gratefully accepted!

Thank you!

Apologies - I weeded the garden before thinking about using iSpot for an ID. But.... many thanks: this is indeed the culprit. Not heard of before so will read up.

Thank you again for a prompt and accurate ID!

Have a look on the RHS website, there's loads of advice on how to deal with the pesky thing!
