On the slip road in between the slip road and the motorway I saw two Giant Hogweed pants. They are are near 6ft tall with giant white flowering heads and red/purple stems. They are NOT normal hogweed and are most definitely the very dangerous Giant Hogweed, I know this as I run a gardening site and I recently wrote an article on identifying Giant Hogweed.
