Can anybody help identify this spiky plant please!

Its got large green seratted leaves, white cone shaped flowers and produces large spiky ball shape things in the axis of the plant as shown in the picture. I presume its come from my wild bird seed that I put out? Im in the UK.

    That is Datura stramomium, the thorn apple.  But don't be tempted to take a bite because it's one of the nightshade family and is poisonous.  I don't know if it came from your bird seed, it's actually a UK resident although not often seen.  At least I've never seen one out of cultivation.
