Take the caterpillars off and feed them to the birds.  Give the sprout plants a bit of tlc and inspect the underside of their leaves every day for butterfly eggs (tiny yellowish dots) and remove them, or net them against butterflies. 

If the growing point of the plant hasn't been eaten it  will recover with some tlc. 

KILLING IVY

I would cut it down and then use one of the specialist Stump Killers

Good luck

Hmm yes, I was looking at that one Topbird   and the BBC one doesn't look much better .

I don't mind tramping around in the rain, but it does seem a bit silly to visit a garden designed to cope in drought conditions, in the pouring rain - and then travelling home with damp legs etc  when the longer term forecast is much better  http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/u10xhr69n#?tab=regionalForecast
