Giant Hogweed

In the press recently have been articles on the dangers of exposure to Giant Hogweed, especially when the sap of the plant gets onto the skin and is exposed to sunlight which can result in severe burning.

The plant is a non-native species and is spread by wind and water dispersal and as a result is common along river banks.

To help you identify the plant and therefore protect yourself, below is information provided by the Non Native Species Secretariat (NNSS).
