I believe this plant may be on an allotment. Very serrated leaves and white flowers. Grateful for any help with ID

The leaves in your picture seem to have a much more pronounced serration, but could it be Star of Bethlehem (Hippobroma longiflora) ?

Just a guess here, I'm not familiar with the plant. *Blush*

The leaves remind me a bit of Isotoma

I think Lin got it right, the leaves and flowers match Isotoma axillaris
