It may be one of the country’s greatest beauty spots - but some plants spotted by an eagle-eyed police community support officer (PCSO) on a popular beach were not quite as natural as they first seemed.

Halesworth Police Tweeted on Friday, August 17 to say that PCSO Ben Hedley-Lewis had come across some “rather interesting plants” while at Southwold beach.

Although to a casual observer they might look like any other green leaves, PCSO Hedley-Lewis noted the “strong smell and dubious origin” of the plants, which were immediately taken out of the ground and seized.

It is not known how they got there and who placed them, but Halesworth Police have appealed for the planter to come forward.

“If the ‘gardener’ who planted them would like to claim them, we’d be happy to see you!” officers Tweeted.
