my sprouts and sweeds have no leaves left just stalks can'nt see any creatchers on themfound one ore two catterpillers on the sprouts but nothing on the sweeds . the sweeds look like a road map without the fields painted in please help if you can  but i think it may be a bit late

Sounds like you have been hit by Cabbage White butterfly caterpillars.  Swedes are part of the same family as sprouts so these caterpillars would go for both.  The swedes may grow some new leaves so leave them in the ground for a while longer but check regularly for the dreaded caterpillers.
