Please ID this flowering plant

nhm-flower01-id.jpg

 

I took this photo because of the flower crab spider, but I have not been able to identify the flower itself.

 

It was taken last year around mid-May in a meadow in Southern England. The meadow was full of these plants, as well as lots of wild radish and oil-seed rape. The plant on the right is another example of the one on the left, and shows the fern-like leaves and red stems. The plants were around 2-3 feet high on average.

 

So far, I have not even been able to work out what family this plant belongs to, let alone the genus/species.

 

Can anyone help?
