Black Ants eating rose buds

Question from fleet

In forum: General

All I can find on Google is the obvious. " Ants don't eat roses but go after the Aphids that do"
Being aware of this I have made certain my roses are aphid free. I don't like to spray but admit to using 'Rose Clear' to rid my plants of infection, verified by careful inspection.
Despite this, on a number of buds I have found swarms of ants (small black ants) embedded into the buds and half the bud eaten away.
Has anyone else had this?

Individual flowers slightly larger than 5p. Lvs small about 1-1.5cm long.
Have seen other varieties with much paler pink flowers.

Hello, can anyone help me identify this plant please.
Is it possibly a blackberry/ gooseberry bush or just a weed?
