Gardeningfantic - we had ivycovered fences like that all around our garden when we moved here two years ago next week!  And it went up the ash trees and to the eaves of our house.  Underneath the fences were rotten and part of one fell down when we had some heavy rain

 we cut it down, filled heaven knows how many skips, dug the roots out by hand, had new fences erected, and this was the same place this summer

 This is the same spot nearly two years later.  

We didn't spray the ivy off - as I said we cut it down and dug it out.  Now if a shoot appears I pull/dig/hack it out.

Hi Rosie, tomatoes don't need direct sunshine to ripen, it's the warmth that does that so there's no need to remove leaves for that purpose.  However, it's good practice to remove the lower leaves (below the first truss) to remove the possibility that they will pick up blight spores from the soil when watering.  It's also good practice to remove some leaves higher up to allow the air to circulate around the plant, again to help prevent blight.
