The massive fatbergs which coagulate beneath our feet

It’s important the parade continues – but safely

Have your say

Did you hear about the fatberg last week which has been removed from a London sewer?

It was a mix of fat, wet wipes, sanitary products and other such delectable items.

And, weighing in at a whopping 15 tonnes, yes you did read that correctly, it took three weeks of working nights to remove it from the drains.

How gross is that?

Apparently it was the size of a double decker. That’ll be a bus, not the chocolate bar.

At least the removal work took place overnight.

This meant that people living nearby did not have to witness the flushed evidence.

Actually, now I think of it, maybe that’s not a bad idea.

A fatberg on every corner might be just the thing to encourage people to put less down the loo.
