Roadside plant

I found this growing alongside someones fence on a busy road in Nottingham so I expect it started off in a garen somewhere.

I've never seen it before and would be grateful for an ID, if it helps any, it closes it's flowers in the evening and the flowers are a bit smaller than e.g Forget-me-knot.

Good native- Scarlet Pimpernel. Pretty common too in disturbed habitats.
