Vast quantity of dangerous Giant Hogweed plants

Reported via mobile in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 22:40, Saturday 15 July 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Giant Hogweed is a known dangerous plant and is notifiable. If the sap gets on skin, and is then exposed to sunlight, a painful rash develops within hours that then forms blisters that can become infected and/or cause scarring. All known areas of GHW should be eradicated without delay.
