It looks similar to the fruit of the Screw Pine, but does not quite match. Take a look at the fruit on this page:

Could it be (Pandanus utilis)

Quote from ninaj99 :

It is not a screw pine or Pandanus utilis it is a vine of some sort.

Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

Certainly a Pandanus, not a Pine.

i have to say the seeds of a Pandanus utilis (aka Madagascar Screw Pine).
what makes you think it is a vine?

forgot to add this link of fallen seeds:

A picture of the fruit on the plant would help.
