Plant identification

Sorry, for some reason the photos are sideways. Does anyone know what plant this is? It’s about five feet tall and has small yellow flowers. 

It’s part of our wildflower/weed patch, and was either part of some bee bombs we put down last year or has just naturally appeared.

    Nipplewort, Lapsana. I have loads of it and leave it in some wild corners as the flowers are quite pretty on a good bushy plant and insects do like it. I only saw the first flower on one today, though I've pulled up lots round the borders while I've been clearing.

    Brilliant, thanks for your help. Does it pull up easily if it spreads where you don’t want it?

    I’m showing my immaturity but I’m definitely pleased it has a slightly funny name.

    There are a few superbum plants. You'll love those then @capvid25
    In London. Keen but lazy.
