Pod ID please/

Can anybody tell me what his bush is please? Also the pods on it are they seed pods or something else. In texture they feel like a runner bean. When split open they are hollow. I could nor see any seed or insect in them. Photo taken in Worcestershire today.

Most plants you can't find in the wild flower books are ornamental escapes, however, this isn't always the case. I found a Pea/vetch type flower not in the books or usual websites and a BSBI member identified it for me as a Fine Leaf Vetch, not seen in Kent for a long time, so don't give up if you can't find an ID.

Thanks. I looked in all my books and couldn't find it. That is why I put it on the forum, I knew somebody would know.
