Unknown flower down by the sea

Since March I have been trying to find a positive ID for a small, purple bilaterally asymmetrical viola-like flower with a yellow centre that grows on walls with palmate’d waxy leaves, so far I have been unsuccessful in match it to fieldguide examples yet I continue to see this plant with increasing frequency through my city. Today I was able to photography it on the habour front sprouting from the seawall.
