What is this plant (weed?)

Hi this is appearing all over in my newly inherited border and I'm not sure whether to leave it or dig it out?

    That looks like a vetch ... there are native ones and introduced garden types. Some are grown as a green manure. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Thank you I think that is definitely it!  I think it might be too invasive for my perennial border though.

    Yes it’s more of a wildflower, or some types are grown on farms as forage and the seeds can get into compost. 
    It’s pretty tho and liked by bumble bees so great fof wildflower patches.
