Ragwort in full flower, soon be seeding down both sides of Linden Lane from M42 bridge running up the road to North west

We annually clear all the flowering ragwort from our property which lies adjacent to Linden Lane, but for several years the road verges have a recurring population of ragwort plants which act as a seed bank for this whole area. There are 6 horses in a field which lies next to Linden Lane and these plants present a real risk to them through poisoning. The field is much closer than the DEFRA minimum distance of 50 metres for ragwort plants.
