Looks like an eleagnus.
Many different types, some are extremely aggressive and invasive like Elaeagnus pungens, while others like the goumi are actually kind of desirable.

I believe this may be Hampshire. UK.
Elaeagnus is not aggressive here.
No sign of the silver dots on the leaves typical of Elaeagnus.

I would like to see clear close up pics.
I wonder if it is Prunus sp.

I agree It looks like a prunus. Not an elaeagnus.

Thanks all.
I will take a clearer photo & upload it tomorrow.
I know it's not like the standard laurel, the leaves are darker and end in points:
I really like it & would like to plant more once I know what it is!
Really appreciate your help.
Thank you

Prunus laurocerasus maybe? Grown as hedges in the UK

England. GB. UK?????
Thanks for new good clear pics.
Leaves not right for Prunus laurocerasus ...common name cherry laurel, common laurel.

Nor is it Laurus_nobilis.....common names include bay tree bay laurel, sweet bay, true laurel, Grecian laurel, or simply laurel.

Opposite, toothed,pointed evergreen ..black berries.
I believe this is Prunus lusitanica..common name Portuguese laurel cherry or Portugal laurel.
