Common hogweed

Observation - Common hogweed - UK and Ireland. Description: Large example of common hogweed. Concerns from people in area that this was giant hogweed, but I'm pretty sure it is common. The stem was the thickest common hogweed stem I have seen though, about 6cm diameter. It had partially been cut down and no flower

Large example of common hogweed. Concerns from people in area that this was giant hogweed, but I'm pretty sure it is common. The stem was the thickest common hogweed stem I have seen though, about 6cm diameter. It had partially been cut down and no flowers were visible. Apologies for poor photos.
