can somebody tell me what is happening to my euonymus please. The leaves seem to have been eaten by something. What can I do?

    Quite possibly vine weevil.

    I agree, very likely adult vine weevil damage.  They are mainly nocturnal feeders, so try inspecting with a torch after dark.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    They aren't normally bothered long term @MartineB . It's just a bit unsightly  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Interesting, we usually only get them our Bravo variety (looks similar to yours), but they don't seem to bother the other Euonymus varieties that we have.  Perhaps they are partial to a bit of variegation in their diet.
