‘Nightmare’ plant Japanese knotweed has invaded the Derby Hippodrome

“Nightmare” plant Japanese knotweed is growing at the crumbling former Hippodrome theatre in Derby.

And the hard-to-kill alien, which can crack concrete, is threatening to damage nearby buildings, says a local landlord.

He says that the foliage around the dilapidated building on the corner of Macklin Street and Green Lane is so out of control that it is tearing his garden wall down.

The landlord also claims that homeless people are gaining access to the site through a small hole at ground level. Reports from residents have also stated that teenagers have been seen climbing in the ruins of the derelict building, raising safety concerns.
