Some unusual topiary caught the attention of people passing the new Premier Inn in Woking, Surrey. Several phallic-looking plants, all sandwiched between two round shapes of foliage, caused a bit of a stir with a number of people.
After Premier Inn were advised about the horticultural hilarity on Friday morning, some topiary surgery was performed later in the day and all the round plants were removed.
A spokesperson for the hotel chain said: "It turns out the plants were actually not part of Premier Inn at all but were owned by the developers, so [they] were not our responsibility and they have now moved them.
"We cannot comment on this as they were not ours." The new hotel is due to open on October 14.
