Does anyone know if these pictures are japanese knotweed? I know of a couple of other instances of it growing in the local area in recent years so a bit worried but suspect knotweed leaves are less heart shaped?

Its growing from a neighblurs garden so cant see the roots.

    Not JKW.
    Possibly bindweed

    Thanks very helpful, sounds like bindweed is definitely rhe lesser of the two evils

    Yes, bindweed. Zap it with glyphosate.
