    Thanks Nut, I guess I'm a bit paranoid...  there is another area I'll take a picture of later to hopefully get confirmed this isn't ground elder either.

    ?.

    Not ground elder ... could be a wild bramble of some sort ...

    Looks like wild raspberry, Ground Elder would be growing up into the hedging like that.

    yes, I think you've got some there, along with more brambles

    There's about a 15-20 metre length of that on my son's school grounds.  Would this be something worth mentioning to them?  Im about 100m away from this so 'not my problem' but not great for those living next to the school I guess.

    I wouldn't worry about it, schools usually have some rough ground around, if the neighbours  dont like it they can put a barrier down, it doesn't go that deep. I've stopped it from several places in my garden.

    i think it's beneficial to something, can't think what off hand,
