My guess is that it is Bilberry (Vaccinium Uliginosum),

Hi Greengage, many thanks for your reply. It did produce a lot of small blueberry type of fruit, during the summer of this year, in my garden.

Idd say Bilberry 'Vaccinium Uliginosum' alright. It gets those lovely little red bell like flowers aswell. As kids we use to pick those berries as we walked to the school bus, very tasty.
