Mystery plant


This plant has appeared out of nowhere and has grown and grown.   

Can you identify it for me as I have never come across this plant before and I don't know if it's poisonous or not.

    Hi Brian. Its Datura stramonium or Thorn Apple. All parts of the plant, especially the seeds are highly poisonous. Its a weed so best to remove and dispose of it carefully.

    It looks like the aliens have changed species. Lots of these cropping up this year.
