Can anyone identify our mystery plant?
Photo taken two weeks ago and there was no flowers or fruit on it, it's over 6 foot tall and it has 5 leaves to a stalk as well as looking a bit like an Elder, not quite the same as the ones where I grew up. It's really common in this area.

For some reason (stuuupidityyy) I didn't photograph the old mini sized blackcurrants in front of it. By the black sticks in the shot are it.

Thank you.

Edit for more details.

Hello!

First time posting and would really appreciate some help as I am a little naive!

I have just taken over an allotment and I am really looking forward to making a start. The plot is covered in these weeds and I am unsure what they are and what is the best method to remove them. Any help or advice would be awesome thank you.

Many thanks

That looks like willowherb, which is not too bad to get rid of.  Dig it out and make sure you get the roots, although these are fairly shallow and in a clump, so not too difficult.

If it flowers, it seeds everywhere, so it is one to keep on top of.

Congratulations of getting your new plot  :)

Morning,

Have been an allotment holder for a year now, took ages to clear. These weeds keep growing back though and roots are really deep. Anyone have an idea what they are so I can find best way to get rid?

Any ideas about this? It has appeared in fairly large numbers scattered across some "Flowing Lawn Mix" but is not in the official list of included species. I like it and want to encourage it.

I've had enough of these and for long enough you'd think I'd know what they are by now, but I don't!

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!
