Yes, looking at the flower, I would agree, Himalayan honeysuckle.

Thanks for your replies Liz, Fidgetbones, Nutcutlet and Flowering Rose.

As you'll understand, I'm quite relieved !

Also known as 'pheasant berry'.  Be careful of the black berries, they stain like**** and the stain is very difficult to remove from clothing. Apart from that, a lovely plant.
