Plant ID please

Found in a field in the NW of the UK earlier this month. Does anyone know what it is please? (The plant in the centre with the flowers on it)

 

Regards

    Hi,

    from the general appearance it's clearly a member of the Solanaceae. I can't open the photo to give me anything but a distorted view but the shape of the corolla - rather flared makes me wonder if it might be a Physalis rather than a Solanum. The commonly found Physalises, like the Tomatillo (P. ixocarpa) tend to have yellower flowers though.

    Sorry not to be more help

    Fred

    Hi Habdab,

    like Dr Fred, my first instinct was Solanaceae too. I thought Solanum nigrum possibly...
