Can you tell me how to get rid of this (see image) which is growing and forming a carpet in my borders. What is it?

It looks like Liverwort which is an indication of damp and poorly drained ground. You should fork the ground over and dig some humus, compost or soil conditioner, into it.

as Bulbaholic says the soil is poorly drained. Don't bother with any chemicals just hoe/dig the soil. they have a very poor root system so wont be a problem.

welcome to GoY too.

I agree, just turn it under. Not really a problem.
