Toxic Giant Hogweed about to bloom

Reported via desktop anonymously at 11:19, Mon 12 June 2023

Sent to Stockport Borough Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4660378.

On the south side of the A555 between the new roundabout and the Woodford road bridge, (so the LH verge when travelling westbound), I saw a giant hogweed plant with a large bud about to open. I was unable to take a photograph because I was driving on the A555. It looks like the plant is about to flower, and I understand the plant and seeds are toxic and prolific, and are controlled by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It could become established around the drainage pond. and spread into neighbouring properties.
