I wonder if these are more common now. I've had V. tinus for years and it's only 2 or 3 since the beetle turned up. It's only destroyed on bush now, the other not at all
Take care not to end up with an ugly stumpy thing. Cut branches, if they don't die back completely, will just throw up straight sticks. I don't think labiurnum responds well to big cut backs
Just taking you up the forum
I thinks it will be aphids that the ants are after and aphid sucking activities make the leaves curl.

I think it's one of the Staphyleas, maybe trifolia. HCA suggested one of those before the pics arrived
I didn't see another plant had been added
I think youy're right Kate but it doesn'tlook very well does it.
I grow these in shade, can't see the aspect of this one
There you go raspberry
A few more pics might help ID it.

Looks a bit like raspberry
Viburnum tinus with a bad case of viburnum beetle.
I disposed of one of mine it looked so horrible
