Search for the owner

Enquiries are now ongoing to identify their owner.

A police spokesperson said:

“Purbeck Neighbourhood Policing Team came across some very interesting plants this morning.

“We called our colleagues to help us take them down as they were pretty tall.

“These plants were very well looked after and we are sure their owners will be missing them, so if they would like to speak with us, they are welcome to come to Wareham Police Station and we can have a chat.”
