Bean blight horror - advice sought

Hello everyone! I'm growing a load of beans on the balcony of my tower block apartment. Sadly... I've got this scary blight on my yummy beans. Had one last year as well, on tomatoes - whatever can I do? I've chopped the leaves since taking these pics, but what if it comes back? Just chope them back until they die, or let the blight eat my yummy food?

Also I read on the intarnets that there's a type of fungal blight that's attacking beans and strawberries in the States - carried by the same sort of warm rain weathersystem we seem to be having so much of. Is the environment killing my beans?!

Under the cut... (big pics)
