Possibly poisonous vegetation

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown vegetation in Council parks and green spaces category anonymously at 18:12, Monday 7 June 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2775189.

Directly behind the bus shelter there is a very large plant growing with flowers about to bloom. The stem is smooth and has purple mottling and streaking on it, as seen in the photo, and the shape of the developing flower buds indicates that there will be several small flowers blooming in an umbrella shape. I couldn't get a closer look due to overgrown nettles but the appearance indicates that it may belong to the Hemlock family of plants, both very poisonous and invasive. As it is close to a bus shelter I think it's be prudent to have it removed just in case.
