I'm sure it's a type of phlox. I have a similar plant, but pink, behind my pond.

It emerged from nowhere about 6 weeks ago, and flowered this week. There is a huge clump of them now.

Hey Andy. It's not a phlox and has been revealed as a Saponaria Officinalis by Spritzhenry on another pic of it. Probably getting rid as i've been told its a bit of a thug, pretty thug but stilla thug in most gardens! lol
