Help me identify this plant. Large shrub. Glossy leaves. A bit like photinia but new growth is lime green.

Just don't rest on your laurel @DickieLeysh. You'll go through it. 😁

Thanks guys. I've been told laurel has a toxin in the foliage. Is that right? I wouldn't be able to put trimmings in a chipper then...

The leaves can release cyanide when cut so in contained spaces or if pets or children are around caution should be observed
