Stinging Vine

Thank you all again. I'm grateful to learn what the beast actually is. I can't say I like it much. It tries smothers all my lovely hydrangeas and gallops all over the apple and pear trees. I've been using sudocreme for the rash but I do have some hydrocortisone so I'll use now.

I'm in London. This "thing" has been here since I have  - 20 years! Indestructable.

Thank you. Here is a picture. It's grown to the top of the trees, like Jack and the Beanstalk. I didn't know that hops could sting so much. Got an awful rash on my leg.

I have no idea what it is, but it's the fastest, strongest spreading vine-like climber with stinging hairy stems. Bright green maple shaped leaves. It's impossible to get rid of and causes a nasty rash. Wraps itself round everything. Can anyone identity and help?
