    It is a blackfly (aphid) infestation,  broadbeans are very prone to suffering this. Rub them off by hand or blast them with a water jet.
    Edit - I see that the cavalry have already arrived, the black and orange bug is a ladybird larva which will feast on the blackfly. It is one of rge good guys so don't harm it.
