I have a Kerria but it doesn't have any thorns

I have no idea what this plant is, but it looks interesting:  what is its purpose?  Is it merely ornamental or does it produce edible fruit?

I would suggest it is in the genus Rubus - like the blackberry.

Slightly tricky to judge from the pictures as they are not terribly focussed. But agree with Terry T, some kind of rubus does it have pink flowers and yellow raspberry looking fruit ? As I guess it could be salmon berry ( Rubus spectabilis) which is an garden escape in the NE of Scotland and can behave like a weed. In Kerria japonica the stems / twigs are green and thornless and yellow pompom flowers will appear in spring.
