Shrubby tree thing - ID please

BrodiePBrodieP Aberdeenshire, ScotlandPosts: 19
Can anyone help me with an ID for these?
They're about 20ft - 25ft in height and seem to have grown really rapidly over the past 3 years or so.
Pictures 1 and 2 are close up, picture 3 is from a distance.
Prior to them becoming really green and full this year they previously looked almost like bamboo.
Thanks for any help 👍🏻🙂

    Thanks folks 👍🏻 it's difficult to tell from the pictures, but these have been planted in a row and formed a really effective screen. 
    We need to plant for privacy ourselves, so one to consider.
    Thanks again 👌🏻

    Another good shrub to consider is frangula alnus ‘fine line’. It will grow to about 2m and it has a slim profile. I’ve planted one today just to add some height to my border.
