Giant Hogweed

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 10:13, Fri 24 June 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3620007.

There is a large amount of Giant Hogweed growing on the embankment of the motorway down to the industrial units next to the motorway. This was previously dealt with a few years ago but the plants are back and are starting to flower. As a result the plants are spreading beyond the boundaries of the motorway embankment so need to be removed asap. Thank you
