Sorry I don't have any pictures of the flowers, and I don't recall any flowers either
The leaves remind me of lilac but if there weren't any flowers then that would be a pretty disappointing lilac. Unless you pruned it at the wrong time of year.
Yes I need something in the hedge which will produce leaves all year. How long will privets take to grow to 8 - 10 ft tall

Also anyone know what these two are.
These also look like Ash. Especially looking at the new growth after pruning, needs to be dug out.

Suggest acquiring an app for your phone to identify plants, I use PlantNet, must be others as well.
Thanks for your replies

Do I dig it out only (roots and all) or do I cut it down and use a herbicide on it.
Some shrubs can miss a year flowering and some have insignificant ones.
PlantNet can identify by either the flowers or by leaf. Load the App, use your camera to take a pic, then either select identify by Flower or Leaf and then read its suggestion. If will give a percentage % of the probability of its answer being correct. Found if useful once to identity a 'weed' growing in a field using its leaf.

Here are the buds from the plants/trees shown in the last two photos
