My blackcurrant bushes are looking very sick. The leaves have been discolouring and dying off for some weeks, and some fruiting shoots are now dead. The bushes cropped reasonably well, but they’re under attack from something. The question is, what?

That looks like leaf spot disease, which starts low on the plant and works its way up. Collect and destroy the leaves to reduce the carryover to next year.
