Giant Hogweed growing along North Side of the Slipway

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 13:28, Mon 31 May 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Giant Hogweed is growing along the bank on the North side of the slipway to the motorway junction. There is a larger section about 1/4 of the way up (if travelling East) and at least 1 other area further up where I can see it growing in singles or pairs. Dealing with it now could prevent spreading. It is also growing onto the slipway in places coming under the barrier. Thank you
