ID Disease of cherry laurel

My cluster of cherry laurel are being eaten by something. From the window I thought the top leaves had been burned by frost -a reddish brown color. But on closer inspection, the leaves are being eaten. There are round holes in the leaves but also a scaly brown appears to be spreading. It’s like stages of decay. I want to save these. Can you help?
