Re: Can anyone ID this plant please?

Can anyone put a name to this plant please? I found it last week growing from a crack in a concrete embankment next to the sea near Liverpool UK. It was  growing next to a small patch of sea beet.

    I have no doubt it is a species of Cakile. Following Flora Europaea database and taking in account your locality, it should be this one:  Cakile maritima Scop. subsp. maritima Family: Cruciferae Name status: Accepted Synonym(s): Cakile maritima Scop. subsp. integrifolia (Hornem.) Hyl.  W. & N.W. Europe from C. Portugal to c. 68° N. in Norway; rarely in the Baltic and Mediterranean regions in the vicinity of ports, where it is probably introduced
