I know this plant as Orange Balsam. Seems to be a Midlands species, although I have seen it in the Itchen Valley in Hampshire.
I've yet to find this in Yorkshire, though I have seen it in Wales. It is usually associated with riversides. Unlike Himalayan balsam it does not appear to be invasive. It comes from North America.

There are about 10 Orange Balsam plants in a mile long stretch of the Lancaster Canal near Woodplumpton, growing in the margins. Very attractive little flowers.
Welcome to iSpot, Myos. If you can record the location of the plants you have seen as an observation in iSpot that would be great.
