Weed ID - new top soil full of something!

Hi, I hope someone can help, we've just had 3 tonnes of topsoil delivered and after just over a week it is full of this weed/plant which we've never had before.  It seems to be putting down deep roots pretty quickly.  I can't find anything online to identify it.  Can anyone help?  I would like to know what i'm dealing with!  Coin is a 5p.

    A little early to tell yet , but possibly Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus repens) ; if so , can be an invasive weed especially in damp soil .
    Then again , seedlings of Meconopsis cambrica can look similar at that stage .
  • Thank you for the suggestions.  I'll just keep trying to weed them out for now.  I might stick one in a pot out of curiosity.
