Weed identification


Can anyone please identify this weed?
It has subsurface trailing roots all over the place. Is it Ground Elder. If so, what is the best way to get rid of it please?

Thank you

    Not ground elder. Just dig it up with a hand or or trowel depending on the whether it's amongst shrubs.
    Knowing which weed it is never seems important just the getting rid of it preferably without chemicals
