Identify Flowering Bush/Tree (Possibly Buddleia?)

Can someone help me identify some large bush/trees I have growing as a large hedge at the front of my garden? They are completely taking over and need to identify them to check pruning advice.

It looks and behaves like a buddleia, but not sure as I don't recognise the variety.

Covered in orange clumps of flowers at this time of year. About 5 metres high.

    It looks like one of the Buddleja x weyeriana varieties.  A cross between B. globosa  and B. davidii.  I have one called sungold which carries on flowering until the frosts  if deadheaded. I prune it like davidii in Spring.  It flowers on new wood, unlike globosa which flowers early on the previous years wood.
