Black Caterpillar Invasion

Can anyone help?  These little black caterpillars have decimated three trees (see leaf fall) have spread into veg beds, strawberries and raspberries. Any ideas/help on how to get rid of them and what they actually are? Many thanks

    I have five silver birch situated 15 metres away and they’re not affected as yet…

    One of the Processionary moths maybe?

    What sort of trees have they decimated?
