runner bean running away!

Durham, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

can anyone tell me what to do with my runner beans - it's the first time i've grown them and they've run all the way up my bamboo canes and are popping over the top - do i pinch this out to make the plant bushier or just tie it in or something?!!

thanx

hehe, i've got a couple of inch long beans now, really cute. how big do i let them grow? i don't want em to be too tough. also with dwarf french beans, how big for those? One's about 6-7", a monster, do i pick this now?
