Garden invader

Photo from Effie

This plant is currently in flower it is widespread in a garden that has been neglected for 10 years or more. The leaves seem to be evergreen, though that might be because of the mild climate. Can anyone tell me what it is, and how easy it would be to control.

Is this a bay?

Question from Wild Edge Garden Design

Probably obvious but can someone confirm what this plant is. I was told by my client that it is a bay laurel (Laurus nobilis) but I'm not so sure. The leaves aren't quite right. Perhaps another type of Laurus? Is someone able to confirm? Many thanks (as always).
