"Written on the back of the paper behind the print is 'By Hiroshige' - I'd just like to know more about it."
I don't think it's by Hiroshige. Not his style at all - it's early 20th century Shin Hanga.
The picture is a bit blurry, so I can't read the signature, but the second character is likely 'shige', which is probably what led to the identification. But I'm pretty sure the first character isn't 'hiro'.
Can we have a crisp closeup of the signature, please? That's probably the easiest way forward.
