unknown shrub

This shrub is growing in a "wild" hedgerow but does not seems to be a "normal" hedgerow plant. About the same height 2-3m as the rest of the hedgerow which is trimmed to keep it to about that height. The oval leaves have small hairs on the upper side and some on the underside. The single purple berries were there in early July but I only counted five of them on the whole shrub. There are no thorns on the stems. Can anyone identify it for me please?
