What is it

Can anyone identify this plant that has appeared amongst our runner bean plants please. We've potted up a few but have no idea what it is

    Hi - looks like Oleander.  Just a wild guess.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    Not Oleander - definitely euphorbia!  I hate spurge  >:)

    Looks like euphorbia to me too. The acid test would be to cut one of the stems and see if it bleeds milky sap (don't touch it though, it's very irritant).

    Given that Euphorbia Lathyris (Caper Spurge) regularly pops-up from nowhere (if forum posts are anything to go by) that would be my guess.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
