  1. Salford City Council is warning residents and dog walkers to take extra care in Clifton Country park and along the River Irwell valley and to avoid even the slightest contact with the plant. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } The plant, which is related to cow parsley, has chemicals in tiny hairs under its leaves and sap which can cause the skin to become extremely sensitive to sunlight. Even the slightest brush against a leaf can cause blistering and pain within 15 minutes and both humans and animals can be affected. Sun sensitivity can last for months after contact with the plant and if sap gets into the eyes it can cause blindness. NHS Direct advises anyone who has come into contact with the plant to immediately wash the area with cold water and soap and seek medical advice if they feel unwell. Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, said: You can find more information about the plant at: www.salford.gov.uk/gianthogweed Photo attached by Fritz Geller-Grimm [CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], from Wikimedia Commons
