Looks like ivy to me but you say it was a tree?

im not sure it if it was a bush or a tree as it was poking through a fence and about 5ft high, i dont really know much about plants/trees

I don't think it's a tree - it looks like ordinary old ivy. That's the flower bud. Of course it can take over weak or dead trees and take on the shape of a tree or bush.

Loads of it where I grew up. Your phone made a really banal plant look beautiful!
