Over the past few years, one plant has been slowly spreading to live alongside us and although it is arguably one of the most dangerous plant we could encounter, we often don’t even consider it a threat.
Giant Hogweed is a deadly member of the carrot family that can cause burns, blindness and land you in hospital.
Earlier this week we joined BBC Radio 5 Live to talk about the dangers of this impressive plant.
Alternatively, contact your local council for advice. If you should come into open contact with the plant, wash the affected area with soap and water and cover the area from sunlight for 48 hours. If you feel any pain, or notice any kind of rash, contact your local GP.
