Six suspicious plants have been removed from a parish council display after concerns were raised by a resident.
Gardener Tray Veronica was convinced the unusual greenery were cannabis plants when she spotted them in the planter in West Parley, Dorset.
She said: “I can identify most plants so my head did a 360 when I spotted them in the council planter.”
The parish council said they were “not part of this year’s schedule” and have been handed to police to be identified.
Ms Veronica said: “The plants were pretty big when I spotted them so they’d have been in there for a few weeks unnoticed. I’m assuming this was someone’s idea of a joke.”
‘Removed and secured’
West Parley Parish Council said it first became aware of the plants in one of the village’s floral displays on Wednesday.
