This is the first time I have grown dwarf beans, they have started to die, they are going brown, then disappearing, I'm not sure if they are being eaten, I fed them when I planted them, & have get them watered, they are planted in a bed with beetroot, what can I do to save the rest of them With kind regards Barb Hayes

Probably bean fly laying eggs just above the ground in the stem of the plant. The lave eat the inside of the plant stem - it just dies. I plant in the spring now not the autumn - problem solved.
