Get rid of Land Cress

Does anyone have a cure/way of getting rid of land cress in my garden. We must have had loads of seeds blown in, either last year or maybe recently.

    If you do mean hairy bittercress, then I find that hoeing, with a little handweeding as I wander around the garden in the evening, is enough to keep it under control - as long as you do it before it sets seed - if you see a little green plant with white flower buds then yank it out - and don't put it on the compost heap!
